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

As an alternative to chicken to switch things up a bit I like use salmon in a Caesar salad, which is healthier but also robust enough to stand up to the strong tasting Caesar flavour.

I like to use a refreshing combination of cucumber, green leaves and spring onions for the salad, which cut beautifully against the creaminess of the dressing.

What’s more, it’s a low carb, filling, delicious salad that works all year round and tastes particularly delicious eaten al fresco in the sunshine!

For the salad. 

Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees and line a baking tray with foil.

Rub the sea salt, pepper and oil into the fillets, place fillets on tray and cook in oven for around 20 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and flakey.

Whilst the fish is coking prepare your salad, mixing the leaves, cucumber and spring onion in a bowl.

When salmon is break into large flakes, add to salad and drizzle on dressing.

    I really love fish so this is right up my street. I’ve used loads of different sauces but haven’t used a caeser dressing before. Will be on my list for sure, I bet it’s really lovely and fresh. Great recipe.

    I loved Caesar salad (without chicken or fish) when I was a (slightly cheating) vegetarian.

    I love salmon in salads too, so we will be giving this a go. Thanks.
