    Congrats on your new office! That’s exciting. I remember my first job I had a little cubicle out on the floor but I was still SO excited to personalize it. I was only there for a year so I knew I couldn’t go crazy, but I still ended up with a ledge full of various teas, including a matcha whisk (which prompted many conversations, hehe), and definitely cookbooks. They are indeed a great little escape from office life :). I’m loving this summer lunch series – great inspiration for these hot and humid days!

    Delish!! I am always looking for a new salmon recipe. Perfect for the end of summer! That dressing sounds soooo good, too. Do you think it would work with a bit of anchovy paste? I’ll have to give it a try =)

      I bet it would totally work with anchovy paste! If you try it, I would looove to hear how you like it. Hope you and babyboyhuff (so precious!!!) are doing amazing πŸ˜€

    Cynthia. I could live off of recipes from your blog. B2 is quite possibly the luckiest man in the world, for so so many reasons. Also, those file racks are seriously swoon worthy (if file racks can be swoon worthy…). Congrats on the new cave!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Congratulations on your promotion! I understand the excitement of having your own space. I finally moved into my own office 2 years ago and it’s nice to finally get the acknowledgement of your efforts at work. Congrats again! πŸ˜€
    I also love salmon – it’s my favourite fish! This salmon Caesar salad looks really good – I’ll make it at home! Unfortunately I couldn’t bring it to work, because the smell heated fish is not well-liked in the office :/

    Between this and Orangette’s Caesar dressing I am craving Caesar salad something fierce right now. Yum. Congratulations, by the way, on your own office! I do not have an office job, but if I did (and if I felt bold enough to) I would stash cookbooks there as well.

    Woohoo on the new office! I think it’s always nice to make an office space homier, although I would probably be very distracted if I had cookbooks that close to me at work! That salmon looks perfectly cooked and yes, all hail blender dressing. Now I’m craving crunchy romaine lettuce!

    You’re so cute, decorating your office with your cookbooks! I don’t think I could get away with that here β€” my company, like every friggin tech company ever, has an open floor plan (which I have mixed feelings about but whatever) and everybody can just see the clutter on my desk all the time. Sigh.

    THIS SALAD THO.

    This is gorgeous and perfect for summer. I love salmon any and every way, so this is massively attractive to me. Throw in a a fancy salad dressing, and I’m yours. I can’t wait to give this beauty a try!
    And congrats on the new office! That’s so awesome!

    Egg free caesar dressing, THANK YOU! I know I should probably get over my raw egg phobia, but I don’t see that happening as quickly as I want to eat caesar salad. I have my own version of an egg free caesar dressing but I really like your addition of red wine vinegar. I think that will be really nice. Thanks for sharing and as always, stunning photos.
    P.S. congrats on your office upgrade. Your decorations sound charming.

    Love how easy this dressing it – but it still looks totally packed with flavour! And salmon is amazing – so much better than chicken in caesar salad in my opinion. Gorgeous food styling too, always.
    Congrats on getting your own space – I love that your decorations include cookbooks that you can spontaneously flip through – sounds like my kind of work break πŸ™‚ Xx

    yay for a new office!!! how exciting!! now you can be that person who is cool and says ‘step into my office let’s chat’ !!!. and blender dressings for the win. because those who have the time to make non-blender dressing should be making roast chickens instead πŸ˜‰

    Awesome! Congratulations on your new space, woohoo! I bet it’s as cute as can be since you’re so creative and artistic.

    And this looks simply amazing, and vice versa. I was never much of a Caesar person but now I actually enjoy the taste, ever since Greg made me Caesar salad ALL OUTTA SCRATCH some years ago for Valentines, hahha! It was such a pleasant and errrr once in a blue moon kind of surprise so it stuck with me, lol.

    Daydreaming about food is pretty much all I do, so I very much understand the need for a designated space to do it! Also, this recipe looks fantastic– salmon on lettuce is just so elegant, probably because of the gorgeous pink and green colors. So rad! xo

    This salad looks so good, especially with the salmon! I always love your recipes Cynthia, they’re so on point every time. We had a similar experience to your’s last summer at Frankies. Got there, no wait, seated in the patio, perfect weather, watched the sun go down while enjoying amazing food. Ah, so good. Unfortunately we haven’t been seated in the patio (if we can even get a seat without waiting 2 hours) this year since they seem to have a wedding out back every day. Gah! I want to tell people to stop getting married at Frankies. Anyways, love this!

    I recently pre-order the Food52 Vegan cookbook and I am hoping it has a Caesar salad recipe like this! I simple love your photos and your style. The shadow play and dark background always catch my eye.

    Omg. Cynthia!! This is so good. I have made a Caesar salad dressing the old school way before but I like this way so much better. Maybe it’s just the poetic way you described it or that you paired it up with that hunky salmon?(!!!). I can’t decide. But I’m alll over this.

    Yay for moving up! And the fact that you have cookbooks on the shelf of your law office is so awesome! That genius recipe book is so stellar.. I am cooking my way through it. Definitely need to make this salad. πŸ™‚

say hello!
