Salmon and wild rice salad

Author Notes:

As a kid, I didn't like salmon, but my parents sure did. My mom would make salmon frequently...and then make salmon salad with my leftovers. I may not have liked the meal the night before, but I loved my mom's salmon salad. I added wild rice and a few of my own touches here for additional flavor and texture (sorry mom!).

I recommend serving this salad in lettuce cups or on bread with a little butter. It's also delicious with a fork!


Serves: 4

  • 1 1/2 cups cold canned salmon (leftover works too)
  • 1 cup wild rice, cooked
  • 2 stalks of celery, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 large red onion, chopped fine
  • 1/2 cup raisins, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup greek yogurt (2% or whole)
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons minced chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
