Quick and easy Grilled Salmon Caesar Salad (ready in less than 25 minutes and in only two steps!) is colorful, tasty, and healthy. Make the Lemony Caesar Dressing ahead of time to make this salad come together even more quickly.

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) skin-on sockeye salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 Romaine lettuce hearts, torn
  • 1 bunch radishes, halved
  • Lemony Caesar Dressing
  • Garnishes: chopped fresh chives, Parmesan cheese shavings

How to Make It

  1. Preheat grill to high heat (400° to 450°). Brush salmon on both sides with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill salmon fillets, skin sides up, 5 minutes. Turn fillets, and cook 3 minutes or until opaque but still tender in center. Remove skin from fillets.

  2. Toss lettuce and radishes with Lemony Caesar Dressing, and divide among 4 plates. Top with salmon; garnish, if desired.
