If you’re tired of tuna, try swapping out tuna for salmon instead. This quick and easy salmon salad recipe is just as tasty as a tuna salad but comes with its own awesome health benefits.
Salmon is not only a lean source of protein, but it is also rich with omega-3 fatty acids for heart health. Not only that but because salmon is naturally oily, you don’t need as much mayonnaise as you would for a tuna salad, for example. This canned salmon salad is also lower in fat and calories than your classic tuna salad.
Perhaps the best part of this healthy salmon salad recipe is that it’s incredibly versatile. There are so many salmon salad ideas you can come up with, such as turning this into a colorful salmon pasta salad.
We love using this easy salmon salad recipe to create a salmon salad sandwich using whole grain bread. It’s a quick and satisfying lunch that we can prepare ahead of time and just assemble in the morning before work.
