Bagels & Lox

June 2, 2016

This is one of my favorite indulgences. Years ago I used to eat both bagel halves in one sitting. Now, with the price of lox up in the stratosphere & in order make this meal lighter & healthier, I only eat half the bagel & compliment it with a side salad with a little dressing on top. Without the side salad this makes an easy breakfast, with the salad it's great for brunch or lunch.

Serves: 1


1/2 multigrain seeded bagel (or whatever is your favorite)

Handful of organic baby kale, spinach & arugula mixture (or other power greens)

2 Campari tomatoes cut into fourths or 4 grape tomatoes, halved

1 small scallion, chopped

Optional: 3 large black pitted olives, halved

Cream cheese

1 1/2 to 2 slices Nova Lox (this is the unsalted type)

Salad dressing of your choice, I usually go with either oil & vinegar, Italian or a vinaigrette

Optional: fresh ground black pepper to taste


1 Toast one side of bagel, on a cookie sheet, under oven broiler till lightly browned..

2 Remove from oven & allow to cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes.

3 Assemble the salad greens, tomatoes, onion & olives (if using) on a serving plate & add cooled bagel to plate

4 Spread desired amount of cream cheese on bagel.

5 Arrange lox on bagel. Add dressing to the salad, top with pepper (if using) & serve.
