Leftover Salmon Salad

Author Notes: Whenever I cook salmon for dinner, whether roasting, searing, poaching, whatever, I always cook a double portion because I know that I'll be craving this for lunch the next day. Super versatile, feel free to top it on your favorite greens, toast, or eat it plain from a bowl. Feel free to edit ingredient amounts to your taste, but I love the combo of the creamy dairy, briny capers, and fresh dill all in abundance.Connor Bower

In This Recipe


  1. Flake chilled salmon into a bowl. Add in all ingredients and toss together. Add all other ingredients, and toss together with a fork to finely mix everything together. Let sit for at least 20 min to let flavors meld but it should be good to go as is if hungry! Serve plain, on toast, or on greens.
