    Hi,

    I'm cooking a special dinner tomorrow and I'm looking at grilling salmon with a crispy potato salad. I have zucchini and broccoli in the fridge that I thought I might try and use but I'm not sure what would go with salmon. Any tips? Thanks.

    Why not grill the zucchini also and serve that as your side dish?

    Crispy potato salad sounds great. 

    You could just keep the broccoli very simple and pan-steam it. Season with a little soy sauce, maybe some fresh minced garlic. Or some large sliced onions. 

    What goes great with salmon is sorrel, if you can find it. 

    Anything green would work here. Sautéed French green beans. Creamed spinach....

    If you want to use your zucchini I would consider serving them raw, in a salad. Here's one I made (it was a side dish for something else) by peeling strips of zucchini, in olive oil, a dash of lemon juice, and pine nuts:
