Caesar salad is a popular starter or side. Adding grilled salmon elevates it to a main dish rich in beneficial omega-3 fatty acids.
1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons fat-free buttermilk
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 canned anchovy fillets, drained and chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika
Dash of ground red pepper
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets, skinned
8 cups torn romaine lettuce
1 cup fresh corn kernels
1 cup garlic-flavored croutons
How to Make It
To prepare dressing, combine first 9 ingredients in a mini chopper or blender; pulse until well blended. Cover and chill 1 hour.
To prepare salad, combine salt, paprikas, and red pepper; sprinkle evenly over top of fish.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add fish, spiced side down, to pan; cook 4 minutes or until browned. Carefully turn fish over, and cook for 4 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
Combine lettuce, corn, and croutons in a large bowl. Drizzle dressing over lettuce mixture; toss gently to coat. Arrange 2 cups salad on each of 4 plates; top each serving with 1 fillet.

We really like this dressing and I've been using it on other salads too. I use 1 tablespoon anchovy paste instead of fillets & cut the lemon by half. Dressing is fairly thick. Salmon rub has great flavor. The dish comes together easily, tastes great, and feels healthy.
