I love simple lunches made with healthy spreads such as this Salmon Salad. This salmon salad recipe can be made with leftover salmon or canned. 

What makes salmon salad super tasty?

The healthy fresh ingredients such as, red onions, fresh lemon juice, olive oil, celery, cilantro and mustard, blend beautifully with the fish, adding flavour and texture.

Is salmon healthy?

Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are known to lower cholesterol and is probably one of the healthiest fish out there. This delicious fish is also low in calories, rich in protein and low in saturated fats.

And, wild salmon is healthier than farmed-raised salmon. So whenever you can, try and use wild salmon, not only it is a healthier fish but it also tastes better.

best ways to serve the salmon salad

What I love about this salmon salad is adding it to salads, serving it with crackers as appetizers, or making delicious sandwiches with gluten-free healthy flax bread.

Add coleslaw or thinly sliced tomatoes to make the salmon salad sandwiches extra delicious.

If you love salmon, you will enjoy any one of these gluten-free salmon recipes.
