Recipe: Salmon Salad

This is a quick 5-minute recipe that you can pull together for a healthy protein-packed lunch or dinner filled with healthy omega-3 fats. Canned salmon is generally more affordable than fresh or frozen salmon, and it's a great pantry staple to always have a healthy protein on hand.


Make sure your mayonnaise does not have unhealthy inflammatory oils in it (canola, soy, safflower, sunflower), but rather is make with just avocado oil (or olive oil if you don't mind the taste). Making your own mayonnaise is easy and more affordable than buying a healthier alternative at the grocery store, but if you do want the convenience of store-bought I recommend either Chosen Foods Avocado Oil Mayonnaise, or Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayonnaise.
