Tuna Salad Alternative: Salmon Salad with Old Bay

Need to get more Omega 3’s into the diet? Consider this alternative to an old favorite. I was really craving tuna salad like my mom used to make. But with all the controversy over tuna and mercury (of which I haven’t had time to research properly), I decided to use a can of wild alaskan salmon instead.  This is what I came up with and it was delicious if I do say so myself (and I do…).

The best part is that it is creamy with the perfect amount of seasoning and not “fishy” tasting at all, as is sometimes the case with canned tuna. Plus, I know we are eating something good for us so I have a nice sense of accomplishment after lunch. Have you tried canned wild salmon? What are some of your favorite ways to prepare it?
