I love simple lunches made with healthy spreads such as this Salmon Salad. The recipe can be made with leftover salmon or canned. The combination of ingredients such as red onions, fresh lemon juice, olive oil, celery, cilantro and mustard, blend beautifully with the salmon.

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, you can add it to salads, serve it with crackers as appetizers, or make delicious sandwiches using gluten-free healthy flax bread. If you decide to make, sandwiches make sure to top the salmon salad with thinly sliced raw cabbage and sliced tomatoes. It is sooo good!

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