This Salmon Salad is loaded with vegetables and flavor. It starts with canned salmon and it's gussied up from there. I have been making this salad for at least twenty years. I have served it to family, friends and often keep some in the refrigerator for a quick lunch. It's great on any kind of bread, rolls and I even love it on rice cakes. Give it a try and I bet you will love it, too.
