Dill Salmon with Tuscan White Bean Salad

When I was visiting Vermont I had a meal that tantalized my tastebuds!  The meal was salmon bruschetta.  The bruschetta  was stacked with salmon, cannellini beans, celery, and dill.  This honestly tasted like a gourmet tuna salad sandwich.  Of course I have decided to make a dish very similar to this gourmet creation.

As always I have decided to cut out all bread.  I created a white bean salad to hold our seared salmon.  adorning the top of this dish is a dill yogurt sauce.  Yum! This meal is flavor packed and super duper healthy for your body!  This would be a lovely dish to serve at a dinner party to impress.  The best part it only takes about 15 minutes to make!  Score!
