Hearty Salmon Salad Recipe

Salmon is an excellent source of protein and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and this salad is a delicious and easy way to work it into your diet.


We love the combination of crisp veggies, creamy marinade, and zesty lemon in this salad, but feel free to mix and match the ingredients to suit your taste. 

This salad is also a great way to use up any leftover cooked salmon you might have.
