Lemon Ginger Salmon Salad

When it comes to creativity in the kitchen, my baked goods are the ones that really shine. While tasty, my meals in general are very simple. Sometimes, simple is what people need though. When you find savory meals on my blog, simple is what you’ll get! Foods you can enjoy day after day without spending hours in the kitchen. Cue salmon salad.

Canned wild-caught fish is always my go to meal. When I’m not in the mood to cook a meal, I know I can always grab salmon, sardines or tuna and be satisfied. The possibilities to dress them up really are endless. My favorite way to enjoy salmon, however, is in this salad. I absolutely love the flavor combination of ginger and lemon. Really, I’d dress just about anything up with ginger and lemon! For me, salmon steals the cake though. Yum, cake.

I hope you’ll enjoy this recipe as much as I do and find that it helps you have a delicious meal when you’re in a pinch or just not in the mood to cook!

    Hi, great addition for my go to salmon meals. Trying to eat them lots to help heal osteoporosis, but struggling to find variety on aip (when eggs are out, and unfortunately sweet potatoes too for me). So thanks for sharing on the AIP round table!

      I’m so glad to be able to help! Finding variety on a restricted diet can be such a challenge. I completely understand the difficulty of avoiding eggs, as I cannot tolerate them either.

      Thank you for sharing! It means a lot to know I can help.
