My go-to 5 ingredient salmon salad is super simple, Whole30 approved, and perfect for a quick lunch served over greens, in a sandwich or wrap, or on top of your favorite crackers!



2 cans pink salmon
1/2 bell pepper, diced
2 stalks of celery, sliced
1/4 cup diced red onion
1 Teaspoon salt
3/41 cup mashed avocado
Serve: salad greens or wrap
Garnish: Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Seasoning


Drain salmon and place in medium mixing bowl.
Take fork and flake the salmon so it separates.
Add bell pepper, celery, red onion, salt, and avocado.
Stir to combine and then taste and adjust any ingredient to your liking.
Serve over mixed greens (arugula is my favorite) or in a butter lettuce/collard wrap!
Garnish with Trader Joe’s EBBS.
