I woke up feeling not 100% and wasn’t sure if it was just allergies or something more. I didn’t want to take any chances so for lunch I made this super nutrient dense salad. And it came together in less time than it took my husband to heat up his lunch of frozen hot dogs! Any salmon will work however Sockeye Salmon is so tasty that it can be eaten straight from the can. My favorite canned Salmon is from Wild Planet. It is all wild caught and full of nutrients.
