  • For a lighter and lower-cholesterol version of the Panera Salmon Club Croissant, skip the bacon and use a light mayo for the aioli spread.
  • Slice some avocados and press into the top bun to make this sandwich extra gourmet.
  • If you don't have croissants, use another soft bread, such as a hamburger bun.
