Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and lightly grease with butter.

Place 1 phyllo sheet on a work surface and brush with melted butter. Top with a second sheet and brush with butter. Continue layering until all 6 sheets have been buttered, buttering the top sheet. Cut the phyllo stack to make 12 equal stacks, about 4 1/2-inch by 2-inch each. Place on the prepared sheet and bake until golden, turning the sheet halfway through baking, about 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the baked phyllo to a cooling rack.

Place 1 phyllo stack on a plate and top with 1 slice of salmon. Spoon 1 tablespoon of Lemon Crème Fraiche on top and sprinkle with onion. Top with another phyllo rectangle, salmon, crème fraiche, and onion. Continue the process, ending with 3 layers in all. Top each stack with 2 tablespoons of salmon caviar.

Place the greens in a large bowl. In a small bowl whisk together the remaining lemon juice and Dijon mustard. Slowly add the oil in a thin stream, whisking to emulsify. Season with the salt. Toss the greens with the dressing. Arrange the greens around the outer edges of the napoleons and serve.

For Lemon Crème Fraiche: Combine all the ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to use. (Makes 1 cup)
