    I need to up my protein intake and I have a big can of salmon lying around. What should I throw in the salad? I'm thinking of putting stuff that you would normally put in tuna salad.

    So far, I'm gonna put in
    salmon
    chopped hard-boiled eggs (probably only the egg whites, unless you guys think i should keep the yolk)
    Miracle Whip/Light mayo
    Raisins
    Chopped onions
    chopped celery
    salt and pepper
    lemon juice
    ???

    critique demanded.

    Anyone know a good base tuna salad recipe to go off of? I'll probably make it like a tuna salad only with salmon.

    I'm trying to keep it high in protein/omega-3 and low in fat/cholesterol.

    Finished it. Just have to let it sit overnight. I put in:

    14.5oz can of Salmon
    Enough Light Mayo
    4 Hard Boiled Egg Whites
    ~4 tsp Dill Relish
    ~1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
    ~1/2 tsp Pepper
    1 chopped celery stick
    chopped 1/4 of a Vidalia Onion :yum:

    So far its :yum:. I'm gonna eat it tomorrow for lunch on some toasted wheat bread. :bowdown:

    Forgot to pick up lemon juice and couldn't find raisins, so this batch will be sans. I was gonna try dried cranberries, but they were a little too sweet. Maybe next time I'll put in some peanuts for a nice crunch.
