I love a good pre-made salad. If you haven’t noticed already, I’m all about some tuna, chicken, egg and now SALMON salad to have for the week. For a few different reasons, 1) they are simple to make & only require a few ingredients! 2) they are perfect to prep. I love to make things that I can have in a variety of ways throughout the week and this salmon salad is just that. With these, I usually fix them in a salad, on a sandwich or just with some veggies and crackers. Having it already ready in your fridge makes throwing a meal together during the week that much easier.
In this salmon salad, I opted to use fresh salmon because I prefer that over the cans. You can definitely opt to use cans, you may just need 2-3 cans for this recipe.
1 lb salmon
2 tbsp fresh dill
2 tbsp mayo (I use Primal Kitchen Mayo made with Avocado Oil)
1 tbsp spicy brown mustard (also use Primal Kitchen)
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped cucumber
1/2 lemon juice
1/4 tsp onion powder & garlic powder
red pepper flakes
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
Cook salmon in pan by sautéing on each side for 6-7 minutes . I just used a little olive oil on the pan & on the salmon, sea salt & pepper to cook.
Shred the salmon and add in remaining ingredients: fresh dill, mayo, mustard, celery, cucumber, lemon, onion powder, garlic powder & red pepper flakes.
Top off with fresh dill!
Serve with crackers, veggies, on a sandwich, or salad!
