How To Make Salmon and Avocado Caesar Salad
Give your traditional Caesar salad recipe a twist by adding creamy avocado slices, crunchy croutons, and meaty salmon fillets, all in one delicious dish.
Preheat the oven to grill or broil settings on medium-high heat. Place the cubed bread onto an oven tray, drizzle with olive oil or spray with cooking oil spray and bake in the oven until crispy.
Rub the salmon fillets with garlic powder and salt. Heat a non-stick pan or skillet with a drizzle of olive oil and fry salmon until golden on both sides and cooked to your liking.
Remove the salmon; squeeze the lemon juice over each fillet and set aside onto a warm plate. Add the bacon to the same pan and fry until golden and crispy.
While the bacon is frying, boil or poach your eggs to your liking. When poaching, bring a small pot of water and 2 teaspoons of white vinegar to a gentle boil over medium heat.
Create a fast whirlpool in the center of the water with a spoon, and while that water is swirling, crack the egg one at a time into the middle.
Once the whites begin to set, spoon some water over the yolk until it begins to change in color with a cloudy white top, and remove the egg immediately with a slotted spoon.
To make the Caesar Dressing
Combine mayo, yogurt, oil, garlic, anchovies, lemon juice, and parmesan in a small bowl, magic bullet blender, small blender, or a small food processor.
Mix together well, or blend if using a blender, until well combined. Add salt and pepper to your tastes, and mix/blend again until smooth. Taste test.
To assemble the salad
Combine lettuce with the salmon and bacon, avocado slices, shaved parmesan cheese, and croutons.
Pour over the dressing, mix well to combine then place the eggs on top, and serve!
