Salmon Chopped Salad

Salmon Chopped Salad

This Salmon Chopped Salad recipe is quick and easy to make, packed with protein, healthy fats and it’s flavoured with lemon vinaigrette

It was a perfect healthy and tasty dinner for spring. The next day for lunch I decided to go light and have a salad. But instead of only having a salad with tomatoes, cucumber, red onions and green onions, I added the salmon leftover and it brought this salad to a whole new level! That was absolutely so delicious !!
The great thing about this salad is that you can use any type of salmon in here. If you don’t have salmon leftovers , you can use salmon in a can !

This salad is perfect on its own, but if you are someone who doesn’t like salads without carbs, please add cooked quinoa in there and you’ll love the result.
