About This Recipe

I think that sandwiches made with croissants are so luxurious. Even if all you can get are bakery croissants that aren’t very flaky, and just have the texture of regular bread, the large surface area of the rolls gives them more texture. They stand up to fillings much better than white bread or plain rolls.

If you can find real croissants, of course, that’s best. But in Minnesota, I take what I can find! Sometimes I’ll buy frozen croissant dough and bake them just for these sandwiches. But most bakery croissants are just fine.

The filling in this easy recipe is simple and so good. The combination of salmon, mustard, mayonnaise, red bell peppers, and avocados is just about perfect. You could, of course, use any type of meat or vegetables you’d like in the filling. Shredded cooked chicken, sliced rare steak, cooked shrimp, or even tuna would be delicious. You could use sliced zucchini in place of the bell peppers, or use leftover green beans or even peas. But don’t omit the avocado; I think that ingredient is necessary for the luxurious taste of these sandwiches.



In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, honey mustard, and Parmesan cheese and mix gently.


Add the bell pepper, avocado, salmon, and Monterey Jack cheese and mix gently to coat.


Make sandwiches with the split croissants. You can toast the croissants before you make the sandwiches, if you'd like. Serve immediately.
