Step 1

Toss together bagel cubes and 1 tablespoon of the oil to coat.  Toast in a skillet over medium-high, stirring often, until bagel cubes are lightly browned and crispy on outsides, about 5 minutes.

Step 2

Stir together kefir ( or milk), dill, honey, and remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a small bowl.  Toss together lettuce, salmon, cucumber, and tomatoes in a large bowl; drizzle with dressing ( or layer the ingredients as pictured).   Divide salad among serving bowls; top each with bagel croutons. Enjoy!
