Ready to kick things up a bit? This Curried Salmon Salad recipe works as a delicious chopped salad over greens, an appetizer on top of crostini or baguette, and a great filling for your sandwich. So many healthy possibilities that taste fantastic.
When I was a little girl, it’s fair to say sandwiches weren’t on my brown bag radar. Besides the occasional ham and cheese, we didn’t get sandwiches for lunch. In fact, I hardly remember using my tin-metal lunchbox (totally back in style) at all.
I usually was given seventy five cents or whatever it cost for hot lunch back in the day… and I usually came home with that exact same amount of change.
I wasn’t pilfering spaghetti from the lunch lady. I simply wasn’t a big eater as a kid — irony of ironies — and I was happy with a little carton of chocolate milk for lunch.
Or a can of grape soda. Gross, yeah. But it awesome at age 7. Remember Pop Rocks? That and grape soda. Crazies.
Plus, I can’t even imagine skipping a meal on purpose now…
These days, I’m still not a regular sandwich eater. Unless it’s this kind of sandwich we’re talking about. The Hubby and Littles are with me on that one.
When I have fun with sandwiches these days, it’s mostly with my girlfriends. It’s fun and easy to have friends over for build-your-own lunches. Little prep and everyone’s happy.
Put out some cheeses, deli meats, and veggies. Your favorite breads like ciabatta or croissants. Have something different, like this Curried Salmon Salad filling to kick things up a bit.
I’ve made Curried Chicken Salad for a creative sandwich idea in the past with delicious results. This time I swapped out the chicken for salmon and added chopped apples for fall.
Big bonus: this Curried Salmon Salad easily feeds a crowd. I can make a batch and rest assured that nobody will go away hungry. The mild curry adds a wonderful flavor to the mixture of tender flaky salmon, sweet raisins, and crispy apples.
Try it with toasted ciabatta rolls, baguettes, croissants, or flatbread. Use it as a topping for crostini or crackers. Or even mix it up with healthy greens for a yummy chopped salad. Oh, the possibilities!
Just no grape soda.
