We do love our tuna salad, and you can also see that we make the best tuna salad ever, with lots of eggs and crunchy celery!
But, there are days when only a quick salmon salad will do. Keep either pouches or cans of salmon in your pantry and you will always have a quick and easy lunch.
Why salmon for a salad? Salmon is actually a little more nutritious that tuna! Salmon has about 24 grams of protein and actually more omega-3 good fat and vitamin E than tuna fish. So change things up a bit and try this yummy salmon salad with mayo!
