Salmon Caesar Salad

  • Author: Mila Clarke Buckley
  • Total Time: 12 minutes
  • Yield: 2 salads 1x
  • Diet: Diabetic


An easy weeknight recipe full of hearty greens and tender salmon.


  • 4 ounces of Salmon
  • 4 cups of Kale
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons Caesar dressing
  • 1/4 cup Croutons
  • Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (to your liking)
  • 1 teaspoon Avocado oil 


  1. Season salmon with avocado oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. 
  2. Air fry salmon skin side down at 375, for about 7 minutes. Medium rare is 110 degrees Fahrenheit to 125 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Then, while the salmon is cooking, massage the kale with a teaspoon of avocado oil until it’s completely coated and tender to the touch. It will shrink down in volume.
  4. Once the salmon is done, I top the caesar salad with the salmon, dressing, croutons, Parmigiano-reggiano salt, pepper and toss it until everything is well coated. 
  5. Then, I serve the salad and enjoy!
