  1. Fabulous lunch salad! I made this almost exactly as posted except, since I expected the salad to last a few days in the refrigerator, I did not mix in any lettuce. I mixed all the other ingredients together (I used salmon), and on the day I was eating it, I packed some lettuce with my pita to stuff with the salad. It was absolutely delightful! I never would have thought of these ingredient combinations. Can't wait to try it with trout! Thanks for sharing.
  2. I loved this salad! It was a perfect "no-heat" dinner on a day where the temperature reached 102 degrees! I combined the salmon mixture with the mayo and we ate it on a bed of romaine lettuce. I also added some sliced avocado and tomato. We topped it off with a little Creamy Italian dressing and it was wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing this great salad recipe, twissis!


I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
