Recipe by Montana Heart Song
I needed something tangy and a little sweetness to the dressing. Add djion mustard, poppy seed dressing, some mayo (or Miracle Whip), a little sweet relish and you have it. Add a little more cayenne if you wish. This is an optional ingredient.

- 2 cups canned salmon, skin and bones removed
- 2 stalks celery & leaves, diced

- white pepper
- 1⁄2 cup kraft poppy seed dressing
