Weekend Fun and Tasty Salmon Salad

We had a fun, but cold and wet weekend. I know that it’s not that cold compared to other parts of the country, but the temperatures went from the 80s during the day last week to the 40s over the weekend. Plus, it’s been raining quite a bit. We are trying to find indoor activities to do with the toddler as it is essential that he expends LOTS of energy…

One of our outings was to a children’s museum; here are some of the things we did:

Lunch was a simple salmon salad with some veggies from last week’s CSA box.

Salmon Salad
  • 1 can wild salmon
  • 1/4 onion, finely chopped (the onion was quite “potent.” If you are not an onion fan, it’s probably better to omit it…)
  • 6 celery stalks, diced (yes, it was a lot of celery, but I loved it)
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons Wasabi mayonnaise (I used 1 tablespoon, but it could have maybe used a bit more; if you like a milder taste, mixing regular mayonnaise and wasabi mayonnaise would be a good idea.)
  • Radicchio leaves
Mix all ingredients together and you get this:

Served in radicchio leaves.

Questions: How was your weekend? What was the best thing you ate? I think the best thing I ate was a banana with some Nutella… It was soooo good! Smile

Be well,
