Tips for Serving and Storing Leftovers:

If you prefer, you can break up the cooked salmon filet into bite-sized chunks and toss it with the salad.

This salad tastes and serves best fresh. Since the romaine and cucumbers will begin to soften from the addition of salt in the dressing, I suggest not adding dressing until ready to serve.

    AMAZING! I had some leftover grilled salmon from dinner last night along with a bin full of veggies. Popped online and came across this recipe. I had all the ingredients (substituting 2 tsp dried dill for the 2 tablespoons fresh) and threw it together for lunch. So good! With every bite I kept thinking it tasted as good as any salad I could get at a restaurant but it whipped up quick at home! Thanks for posting! Reply

    I’m a loyal subscriber, cooking for my working wife in retirement.
    This recipe might be “easy”, but it took me at least an hour to put together.
    There are a lot of steps, actually.
    Please be more realistic. Reply

    This looks fantastically good. The dressing sounds perfect to me, but do you have a suggestion for a family member who isn’t fond of lemon (she does love all the other ingredients though)? Love your blog! Reply

      Hi Martha, You might try lime juice but I would use a little less or to taste since it has a little stronger flavor or try a basic vinaigrette to dress the salmon salad instead and it would still be very tasty! Reply

    Hi Natasha! Do you think if I fried the salmon in an iron skillet it would be still okay? Don’t have much experience with them, as I just bought one today. Thanks in advance for your response and super excited to try making this delicious salad tomorrow! Mouth watering thinking about how much I’ll enjoy it tomorrow. I’ve tried your other salads with similar dressings and there always a delight! Reply

      Hi Julie, you can use a seasoned cast iron skillet or a coated cast iron pan. Both will work, just make sure the oil is hot in the pan before adding the salmon and only turn it once. It tends to stick a little more in cast iron, but not terribly so. 🙂 I hope you LOVE the recipe! Reply
