Caesar Salad with Grilled Salmon and Avocado

We grill a couple times per week in the summer time.

Personally, I don’t eat meat, but LOVE seafood, so whenever it’s my choice to grill I ALWAYS choose Salmon.

We usually make one huge filet and will have leftovers for the next night.

But, I love using the leftover salmon for SALADS!

This is one of my go to ways to make a fantastic salad.
