I totally made this on a whim the other night. My Fireman was at work and I was home alone and hungry.
Ok- so not a complete whim. I picked up some grilled salmon from Central Market intending to have it for dinner the night my Fireman was working- but what I ended up doing with it was genius.
So I didn’t make up the original idea for Salmon Salad- but, this was really good. I actually forgot I was eating fish! You could totally make this with pouch/canned salmon- even though I opted for the fresh. I mixed up the dressing and then added the fish after I shredded it with a fork.
I had leftovers and ate some for lunch the next day- but skipped the bread and scooped the salad with baked natural tortilla chips- talk about filling. The heart healthy fats from the low fat mayo and salmon- all that protein. Made for quite the satisfying lunch.
I love these kind of accidents. My random throwing of ingredients to make something really delicious. I’m actually surprised I remembered all that I had in there.. But if ever a doubt- my pen and notepad are always within arms reach.
