A salmon salad sandwich is a quick and easy lunch idea! Creamy and savory, it’s a tasty spin on the classic tuna.


  • 1 celery rib, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 1 dill pickle, finely chopped (¼ cup)
  • 1 5-ounce can salmon (2/3 cup cooked flaked salmon)
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise*
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt or plain yogurt*
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 4 slices bread
  • Lettuce leaves, tomato, etc: for garnish


  1. Prep the celery, red onion and dill pickle as noted above.
  2. Drain the salmon and place it in a medium bowl: mash it lightly with a fork. Add the chopped vegetables, capers, Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and kosher salt and stir to combine. Taste and add more salt if desired. 
  3. If desired, spread the bread with mayonnaise. Add lettuce or other sandwich toppings. Spread the salmon salad onto one half of the bread and top with the other slice of bread. 


*If desired, skip the yogurt and use 3 total tablespoons mayonnaise: add more to taste if desired.
