Method: 

In a container for marinating, zest orange and lemon. Slice orange and lemon in half and squeeze out all juice. Remove any seeds. Add juice to zest. Place salmon fillet in marinade. Cover and refrigerate for one to two hours.

In the bowl of a food processor, combine shallots, garlic, vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper and rosemary. Blend for just a few seconds. Add olives and bell peppers. Pulse until finely diced.

Heat the grill to medium-hot. Grill for about 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Turning is not necessary. Salmon is done when it turns a light pink color throughout.

In a large serving bowl, toss salad greens with cucumbers and tomatoes. Add diced vegetables from the food processor. Slice salmon fillet into small strips and decoratively lay on top of salad.
