An easy, main dish salad

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups fish, cooked and flaked (canned is fine)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (use a good quality, such as Hellmann's)
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1 tablespoon pickle relish
  • 1 cup peas, cooked to crisp-tender
  • 1 cup beet, cooked and sliced
  • 2 eggs, hard cooked
  • salad greens


  1. Combine first five ingredients lightly, taking care not to break the fish into too small pieces.
  2. Arrange salad greens on chilled plates.
  3. Pile salad lightly onto greens and garnish with alternate slices of beets and eggs.

Amazing! I added shredded crab meat and shrimp. I used Hellmann's Light mayo. I mixed the beets into the salad and they turned it purple - I think next time I will use red peppers for color and texture instead. My kids and I loved it, my DH (not a huge beet fan) liked it.

Interesting combination of flavours. Sorry about the egg slices, my hard boiled egg turned out soft boiled, my bad. I used some cod fish and had no frozen peas but did have a nice mix of snap peas and water chestnuts etc., which worked out quite well. All in all I did enjoy it, something different ! and a nice change to have my cod. Thanks for posting.

Mmmm! Did we ever have a good lunch today! I had smoked salmon on hand, so I thought I'd try it in this recipe. It went very nicely with all the other flavours in the salad, although it was very rich. To balance that out, I added sliced boiled potatoes and plain croutons and a bit of sour cream instead of some of the mayo. I also stacked the beets underneath the fish mixture and egg, I was afraid it might dye everything... Very satisfying meal, thank you!
