Grilled Salmon with White Bean and Salad

We were looking to make something light, fast and easy last night. This salad was perfect. We tried out a new salmon spice and because we are not really fans of arugula and we had butter lettuce on hand, we used that instead.
It turned out great for the hot summer evening to eat on the patio!
