Easy California Lox Bagel Sandwich


This easy California Lox Bagel Sandwich is a quick breakfast that’s packed full of flavor. It’s your favorite deli breakfast made a little healthier with spinach and avocado.



2 ripe Haas avocado, peeled and sliced

Juice of 1 lemon or lime

Kosher salt 

4 Whole wheat everything bagels

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature

½ cup baby spinach leaves

12 packages smoked salmon lox (I used Daniel Boulud’s Artisinal Cut Smoked Salmon)

1 small red onion, thinly sliced

4 large sprigs fresh dill weed


Peel and slice the avocado.  Place the slices on a shallow plate and drizzle both sides of the avocado slices with lime or lemon juice.  Sprinkle with salt and set aside.

Slice the bagels in half and toast lightly.  A bagel guillotine makes cutting the bagels quick and safe.

Spread the bottom half of the warm bagel with a thick layer of cream cheese.  If desired, spread a thin layer on the top half.

Place a few spinach leaves over the cream cheese on the bottom bagel.

Arrange a couple of slices of the avocado on top of the spinach leaves.

Top with a few slices of lox and red onion.

Lay a sprig of fresh dill over the onion and place the bagel half on a small serving plate.

Place the top half of the bagel on the side and serve immediately.
