This is a nice and refreshing salad. So many delicious flavours packed into this dish. Romain tossed with cucumber, avocado, cherry tomatoes and a dill cream cheese dressing. Topped of with fresh smoked salmon.
1 small garlic clove, peeled
1 Tbsp light cream cheese
2 tsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped
3/4 tsp Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp light mayo
1 Tbsp canola oil
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp white wine vinegar
1 small head romain, chopped
2 Tbsp red onion, thinly sliced
6 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 avocado, diced
1/4 cucumber, diced
8 oz smoked salmon slices
everything but the bagel seasoning
For dressing: Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend smooth. Set aside.
In large bowl toss romain, onion, tomatoes, avocado and cucumber with the dressing. Mix until everything is well coated. Place into serving bowls neatly. Top with smoked salmon and everything but the bagel seasoning. Enjoy!
I like to save some of the sliced red onion to use as a garnish on top as well.
If you do not have “everything but the bagel seasoning” you can use some toasted seeds on top for a little crunch.
