Salmon Salad

Standard

sal salYesterday’s left-over Grilled Salmon becomes today’s awesome Salmon Salad. I had just enough to make up one half of this fantastic recipe. Remove the skin from the cold salmon fillets before you pull it into flakes with a fork. I mixed up the vinaigrette and tossed it with the celery, red onion and capers before I added the salmon. I have to tell you that this vinaigrette is divine!! This also gave me a chance to use some fresh dill from my herb garden. Just a warning – if you are not a big fan of capers you might want to reduce the amount by half. So good — super delicious and super healthy.
