I love Caesar salad, and came up with this variation for a quick and easy dinner salad.
- 6 -8 ounces salmon fillets
- 4 cups mixed salad greens (red leaf and herbs & spring greens salad mix)
- 1 -2 ounce parmesan cheese, shaved
- 1 -2 tablespoon sliced almonds (suggest Almond Accents brand Italian Parmesan flavored)
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (I use Mt. Kofinas brand Mediterranean Blend infused Cretan olive oil)
- 1⁄4 cup caesar salad dressing (I highly recommend Cindy's Kitchen Roasted Garlic Caesar if you can find it)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt (to taste)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
