  4. Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. when hot, sear the salmon for 3 to 4 minutes on each side (for medium rare to medium depending on thickness). Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Toss the lettuces in half the remaining dressing and divide among 6 plates.
  6. Toss the potatoes with a small portion of the dressing, divide, and arrange on top of the lettuce. Repeat with the string beans and the tomatoes. Top with the Salmon.
  7. Garnish with Niçoise olives, and cornichons.
