Classic Salmon Salad: Make a Healthy, Convenient Lunch

classic salmon salad Classic Salmon Salad: Make a Healthy, Convenient Lunch
Have you tried canned salmon? Over the past few years its become widely available, and is a delicious alternative to canned tuna. Because of mercury concerns, Brian and I eat tuna rarely and dont give it to our daughters at all. According to Oceana.org, canned tuna can have up to 35 times as much mercury as canned salmon. Numbers like that are a great reason to skip the tuna altogether and opt for salmon instead.

High in protein and low in fat, canned salmon is also an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids just one 6 ounce serving can provide an entire weeks worth of omega-3s.

Canned salmon is also mild, flavorful, and satisfying. And our very favorite salmon salad recipe is a cinch to make! So the next time midday hunger strikes, give this tasty, hearty salmon salad a try.
