Egg Salmon Salad – A Leftover Salmon Recipe

Egg salmon salad. Yes…. it’s a twist on an old favorite. Egg salad is a relatively common meal for me. It’s easy, it’s fast, it has pretty decent nutritional value, and I always have hard-boiled eggs in my fridge.

I’m always looking for ways to use leftover salmon. I can eat leftover anything in it’s original form about 2-3 times before I have to start getting creative. And, with lots of fresh, wild Alaska salmon in my freezer, it’s time to get creative

Egg salmon salad. SalmonAtSeven.comThis is such a simple recipe, but so good, so filling, and so healthy, that I’m amazed I didn’t think of it sooner! This dish is made up of salmon left over from my Grilled Alaska Salmon – 3 Ways post, a few days ago. 🙂
