Salmon Caesar Salad

The recipe for Cured Salmon was shared earlier. This Cured Salmon is a real gold when it is added to a salad. Below is a recipe for a Salmon Caesar Salad, that is a perfect light meal for a lunch or late dinner.

A home-made mayonnaise is used in this salad, which you will make in the amount that exceed the needed quantity for this salad. You can use any oil, however the best result is achieved with sunflower oil. It also requires all ingredients to be at the same even temperature, and the blender works from the bottom of the jar slowly going up to the surface. You will see that a ‘white cloud’ of mayonnaise will follow your blender stick upwards, if you ‘wait’ for it.
