Salmon Fiesta Salad

Serves: 1

Tuesday night I made a beautiful piece of salmon for dinner. I had baked it in the oven with some fiesta citrus seasoning. The piece was so big that I had a nice size chunk left over. When I came home to make lunch on Wednesday I saw it sitting there on the top shelf in the fridge, just waiting to be used. So I decided to turn it into a nice salad for my lunch! It was quick, required only a few ingredients and was bursting with flavor! Perfect for a hot summer afternoon.

Fit Ingredients

  • 2.5 oz baked salmon
  • 2.5 tbs (36g) greek yogurt
  • 1 medium stalk celery
  • 1 tbs fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbs fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tbs salt free fiesta citrus seasoning ( I used McCormick’s brand)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

Chop your celery and cilantro. In a bowl, flake your baked salmon. Add your celery, greek yogurt, lime juice and seasoning to your salmon. Mix well. Gently fold on your fresh cilantro (you don’t want to crush it). Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Serve on top of a bed of lettuce or inside a sandwich! I had mine on half of a Trader Joe’s flatbread with some avocado. It would also be great as a dip for some whole grain crackers! Delicious!! This is a perfect way to use up left over salmon :)
