Lemon Dill Salmon Salad

Printable Version

I still stand by chopped salads being the best kind of salads. You get everything in one bite and you don’t need store bought dressing because all the flavors of everything mend together very well when you simply add a few simple ingredients. Well here’s a super flavorful one perfect for warm days when you don’t want anything too heavy. Feel free to prepare this large salad as a meal for one or to divide it up as a side.
