Salmon Caesar Salad Tips
Should you use skin-on or skinless salmon fillets?
You can use skin-on or skinless salmon fillets for this recipe. We generally like using skin-on fillets for most salmon recipes
because it provides a protective barrier that keeps the flesh moist as it cooks. The skin can also prevent fish from sticking to the grill grates. That said, you can absolutely use skinless salmon if you prefer. Smoked salmon is a good option for this recipe, too, if you don’t have time to cook.
Can you use homemade Caesar dressing?
Feel free to use your favorite homemade Caesar dressing
when making salmon Caesar salad. Caesar dressing is typically made by blending egg yolks, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, anchovies, garlic, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice and black pepper. For a shortcut, you can start with mayonnaise instead of egg yolks and oil.
How can you make salmon Caesar salad your own?
There are so many fun ways to make Caesar salad your own. Try experimenting with the lettuce mix, swapping in kale and shredded Brussels sprouts for the romaine. You can also customize the toppings, adding fresh vegetables like cherry tomatoes, sliced avocado, cucumbers, radishes or pickled onions. We also love playing around with homemade croutons
to add texture and flavor. It’s as easy as seasoning bread cubes with garlic, oil or spices before baking them to crispy perfection. Find more ideas by checking out other recipes inspired by Caesar salad

This salmon Caesar salad is fantastic as a light lunch, so don’t feel like you have to serve it with any sides. An easy way to serve salad is with a piece of garlic bread, or a side of breadsticks.
