Servings: 2 servings


  • 1 plain bagel diced or torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 ounces cream cheese diced
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon see notes
  • 2 tablespoons everything seasoning see notes
  • 8 ounces cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 baby cucumber diced
  • 1 shallot thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine the shallots, tomatoes, vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of the everything seasoning. Toss to combine, and set aside for at least 10 minutes.
  • Spread the diced bagel in an even layer on a sheet pan. Toast the bagel pieces in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the edges start to turn golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Combine the toasted bagel pieces, cucumbers, capers, and salmon to the bowl with the tomatoes and shallots. Flake the salmon into large pieces with a fork or your fingers as you add it to the bowl. Drizzle in 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and toss to combine. Season with additional salt, pepper, or olive oil if needed.
  • Divide the salad between two plates. Top with the diced cream cheese and remaining everything seasoning. Enjoy!


  • Any type of smoked or cured salmon will work in this salad! If you don’t like smoked salmon, a fresh salmon filet will work well also.
  • I used this recipe for the everything seasoning:
    • 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
    • 1 Tablespoon poppy seeds
    • 1 Tablespoon dried minced onion
    • 2 teaspoons dried minced garlic
    • 1 teaspoon salt
