  • 3 cups cooked salmon
  • 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons capers
  • salt and lemon pepper to taste
  • 4 cups salad greens
  • 1 large avocado
  • 2 medium tomato, chopped
  • Ranch dressing
  1. Flake the cooked salmon into a bowl. Mix the yogurt, mayonnaise and salmon together with a fork. Add salt and lemon pepper to taste.

  2. Stir in the capers. (This is where you'd stir in other things you like, like green onions, celery, minced pickles - all great to add to the salad.)

  3. When it's mixed well, set it aside to make the green salad. Lettuce, tomato and avocado with some chopped arugula are perfect with this. Top the greens with a scoop of salmon salad.

  4. Drizzle with some ranch dressing and top with some french fried onions.

  5. Now dig  your fork in and taste the goodness.
