  1. In a small bowl, mix together chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, salt, allspice, cumin, white pepper, and paprika. Reserve 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture for the vinaigrette, and sprinkle remaining spice mixture over salmon fillets. Cover, and refrigerate for 6 hours.
  2. Preheat grill for high heat.
  3. Lightly oil grill grate, and spread a small amount of olive oil on salmon fillets. Cook salmon 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until easily flaked with a fork.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together tomato-vegetable juice cocktail, vinegar, tomatoes, olive oil, and reserved spice mixture to make vinaigrette. Place salad greens in a large bowl, drizzle with vinaigrette, and toss to coat.
  5. Divide greens among individual serving plates. Top each plate with a salmon fillet, and spoon any remaining vinaigrette over the salmon.

The rub on salmon and chicken was very good. The dressing,however was kinda a bust. Tasted like V8 juice and needed allot of help if you asked me.

I helped a friend make this dish. At first I was very skeptical. The dressing along was not all that great, but then you put it all together and it was fantastic. Instead of using the grill, ...

Everyone I have made this for has raved about it. The rub is so flavorful it makes the whole salad. It is also good on chicken. I like to use Spicy V8 to add a little zip.
