I have been a long-time fan of tuna salad since it’s easy to make and can be served a variety of different ways. While at the grocery store this weekend, my wheels started turning on how I could make a different, more delicious version of this old favorite. I had the butcher cut me a pound of Alaskan salmon and stocked up on fresh herbs for my makeshift recipe. This fresh salad is the ideal lunch served on fresh greens or a whole grain baguette. It’s bright and full of flavor, with capers, fresh dill and parsley, red onion and a zesty mayonnaise. While I didn’t remember to buy celery, I added a diced Granny Smith apple I had on hand which added the perfect flavor and crunch. Scroll down for the recipe!
