  • 1 package Wild Smoked Salmon
  • 4 slices Bacon (sugar-free, nitrate-free)
  • 4 cups Lettuce or greens of choice
  • 2 Tbsp Dairy-free pesto (recipe below)
  • pinch Herbs (I used chives and thyme)
  • squeeze fresh lemon


  1. Add your bacon slices to a parchment-lined baking sheet in the oven at 350f degrees for approx. 15 minutes until crispy. Set aside when finished.

  2. Prep salad in the meantime, arrange bowls with greens and mix in the herbs. Add a dollop of pesto and mix well to coat the greens, reserving a little for the top.

  3. Place slices of wild smoked salmon over top, drizzling remaining pesto and herbs on top. Sprinkle the entire salad with a squeeze of lemon juice and your broken up bacon bits. Serve and eat right away.
