Every Herb Canned Salmon Salad
It seems the older I get, the more and more I love fresh herbs! My favorites are a tie between rosemary and dill, but I also love Italian parsley, thyme, and basil. All of the above were picked from this year’s herb garden!
Last summer, I created this Every Herb Salad Dressing that blends all my favorite herbs with yogurt, olive oil and lemon juice for a bright and creamy dressing. Today’s salmon salad was inspired by that!
I generally like a combination of yogurt and mayo in my fishy salads (tuna, salmon, sardine). The yogurt brightens and lightens, but using some mayo provides a richness that yogurt alone cannot create.
I am partnering with the new KRAFT Avocado Oil Mayo for this post as a healthy swap to traditional mayonnaise. Made with — you guessed it — avocado oil, it has a healthier fat profile than typical mayo, which is often made from soybean oil. The KRAFT Avocado Oil Mayo contains 232 mg of Omega-3 alpha-Linolenic acid in every serving, and it’s also made from cage-free whole eggs*, for which I give a huge thumbs up. It tastes great, too! It’s the first mainstream avocado oil mayo product to hit the market with an affordable price point.
How to Make It
This recipe is very easy: chop your veggies and herbs and combine with tinned salmon, yogurt, mayo, mustard, and salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix and eat!
I put a serving size of 2 on this for lunches, but you could also serve it as a party dip or picnic spread.
Thanks to the variety of herbs in each bite, your brain will think, “There’s some dill! OH — thyme! Mmmm basil. Oh and a hint of rosemary in there!” #herbpartyinyourmouth
