Northwest Salmon Salad

Total Time

Prep: 45 min.


4 servings

I love that I can use my favorite Northwest ingredients—fresh salmon, blueberries and hazelnuts—all in one recipe. The salmon and sour cream dressing are just as scrumptious in a sandwich. —Davis Clevenger, Dexter, Oregon

    I used cashew pieces instead of hazelnuts and added shredded carrots for color. Delicious. Thank you, Elda, for sharing this recipe.

    I made this salad exactly as written (except for using walnuts in place of difficult-to-find hazelnuts) and it was an amazing summer dinner!

    This was a very light and very refreshing salad. The fruits mixed very well with the salmon and other ingredients. The dressing needed a little more of a kick so we will experiment with that in the future. Overall a fantastic spring/summer salad!
