Warm Salmon Salad with Homemade Caesar Dressing

How To Make Warm Salmon Salad with Homemade Caesar Dressing By Honest Mum

As an alternative to chicken to switch things up, the children adore this recipe for Salmon Caesar salad, which is healthier but also robust enough to stand up to the strong tasting Caesar flavour.

Using the refreshing combination of cucumber, green leaves and spring onions (some of the kids’ favourite veggies) to cut into the creaminess of the dressing, they add bite and flavour to the dish.

This is a filling salad that works all year round.

The children eat this without the Caesar sauce due to intolerances and opt for Soy Sauce on theirs but my husband enjoys it with.
