In a jar with a tight-fitting cover, combine all dressing ingredients; shake well, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours if time permits. Shake again before using.

Tear lettuce into pieces and line a low, wide salad dish. Rinse artichokes, drain on paper towels, and arrange on top of lettuce. Drizzle with half the salad dressing.

In a separate bowl, toss potatoes, pepper and green onions with remaining dressing. Arrange on top of lettuce and artichokes. Crown the salad with salmon slices. Makes 4 servings.
