“Advice from a salmon:  Never Give Up!”

This delightful salmon salad recipe came about because my brother is coming for a visit. No, I don’t worry about thinking logically.  Actually, I don’t worry about much.

To explain the recipe/brother connection.  When my brother visits I’m going to cook for him, maybe, or take him to some of my favorite restaurants.  If I’m going to cook for him I’d have to open the fridge.  Right now the inside of my fridge looks like the inside of my fridge.  Not pretty.  I decided to make it pretty.  That would involve combining ingredients into meals in order to consolidate some of the food.

I found a half of a cucumber that was, like me, just starting to wrinkle, some peeled broccoli stems that were still crisp and sweet, some diced and cooked sweet potato, and a piece of baked salmon.  So lets add a few things to this congregation and call it a recipe.


1/2 cucumber, peeled and diced

1/2 cup broccoli stems, peeled and diced

1/2 cup sweet onion, diced

1/2 cup cooked and diced sweet potato

1/4 cup baked salmon, flaked

1/4 cup mayo


diced tomato for garnish, if available


Combine all the ingredients except the tomato.  Garnish with tomato.  Enjoy!


This salad is so delicious that I declared myself a genius.  It’s actually a take on tuna salad but without the frozen peas.  Peas would work so go ahead and add them if you must.  Life is all about choices, or at least it should be!
