It’s 2010! Two thousand ten! That means back to school after what was hopefully a nice holiday break and putting on your school lunch hat again. At our house this Christmas there were a lot more sweets and foods around than we normally have, so I’m trying to get back to the healthy foods we all love and this salmon salad is a perfect choice.

Salmon is a food you should try to give your kids at least once a week. It’s high in protein and Omega 3 fatty acids which is important for brain function and development. Even kids who say they don’t like fish tend to love salmon for it’s texture and taste.

If you don’t feel like you have extra time on your hands or money in your wallet to make a piece of fresh salmon, canned wild salmon is a great alternative. Add some diced pickle, a squeeze of lemon juice and a bit of mayonnaise and I guarantee your kids will ask for this dish on a regular basis!
