Simple Salmon Salad

4 WWPP Posted by 5 years ago 8 Comments

I made this simple salad on a whim today. Gina totally inspired me with her Shrimp Salad on Cucumber Slices. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make something to serve on cucumber slices. It’s a GENIUS idea!

So that’s what I did today with a single serve salmon pack. I received a bunch of seafood products in a price pack I won at the Perinatal Nutrition Working Group’s booth at BlogHer. Now you must know when I entered the raffle I didn’t KNOW I was pregnant. So when I won it seemed serendipitous! Oh… you did know I was pregnant, right? I can’t remember if I spilled the beans here on GreenLiteBites so if you don’t follow me on twitter or read my weight loss blog you may not have known. Anyway… I’m 2 months! :)

Pretty big news, I know, but let’s get back to this recipe. It turned out more delicious then I thought and SO simple. It’s super light but really flavorful. My favorite combination! Simple Salmon Salad

Oh! even the husband liked it. The little guy wasn’t home but when he saw a picture he said it looked good and that he would have tried it if he was here. He’s too stinkin’ cute!

  • 2.6 oz package of cooked salmon (I used Chicken of the Sea Pink Salmon )
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic diced tiny
  • 1 plum or italian tomato diced
  • 1 heaping tbsp of chopped chives diced (I think it was about 15 stalks)
  • Pinch of Kosher Salt

Combine all ingredients and let it sit for a few minute allowing flavors to merge.

You don’t HAVE to serve it on cucumber slices, it would be great in a pita with some baby spinach or on some whole wheat toast. You could even easily double or triple the batch and serve it on the cucumber slices for a pretty appetizer at a party. Heck.. I was eating it straight up in between scooping it on the cucumber.
