Northwest Salmon Salad Recipe

Northwest Salmon Salad Recipe

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!"
