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 🙂

    I couldn't find the seasoning at Publix. Do you know what might be a good substitute or maybe some other seasoning I could mix with the yogurt and salmon?

    • Mrs Dash also makes a great salt free version. Or if you have a walmart near you, they carry both as well! :)

    • Sorry it took me a bit to get back to you, I was away on vacation! You could always leave the cilantro off or use parsley in it's place. And you may be shocked at how many people are allergic to cilantro! Let me know what you think after you make it! :) Enjoy Ann Marie!

    • Hey! You could leave the cilantro off or replace it with parsley! I actually had another reader ask me the same thing! Seems like a very common question! When you make the recipe, let me know what you think! :)
