Salmon Salad with Grapes, Walnuts, Celery, and Onion October 3, 2012

Jamie says: You know something is good when you crave it again the next day- like this Salmon Salad with Grapes, Walnuts, Celery, and Onion. I made it for lunch for me and my Mom two days in a row.

And it’s hard to believe that only one can of salmon made so much (when all the additional ingredients were added, of course). It reminded me of how when I was little my Grandma fed a bunch of us kids and my parents on one or two cans of tuna. She just kept adding ingredients and it turned out to be a filling and memorable lunch.

The contrasting textures and flavors gave this salad an extra punch.

Sweet, crunchy, and omega-3-rich ingredients

It was quite simple to make and works perfectly over a salad, in a sandwich, or on crackers.

This versatile salmon salad is perfect on bread, over lettuce, or on crackers
