  1. For the salmon, heat coals in an outdoor grill and brush the top of the grill with oil.
  2. Rub the outside of the salmon with olive oil, salt, and pepper, to taste.
  3. Grill for 5 minutes on each side, or until the salmon is almost cooked through.
  4. Remove to a plate and allow it to rest for 15 minutes.
  5. For the sauce, place the mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, basil, dill, scallions, salt, and pepper in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade.
  6. Process until combined.
  7. Add the capers and pulse 2 or 3 times.
  8. To assemble the sandwiches, slice the rolls in 1/2 crosswise.

  10. On the bottom 1/2, place some mesclun salad and then a piece of salmon.
