This is a terrific salad to serve for lunch or brunch. Colourful, lots of protein and plenty of taste. A great way to stretch a single can of salmon. NOTE: Cooking time is chilling time.

Very nice tasting pasta salad! I especially liked the addition of lime juice & dill. I'd baked some extra salmon the night before making this so used some of that instead of the canned variety. Absolutely a recipe to keep on hand! Many thanks, Diana!
