Simple Salmon Salad Sandwich 


  • 1 can wild caught salmon, drained
  • 1 egg, hard boiled
  • 1 red pepper, diced small
  • 2 sprigs fresh dill, chopped
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise or half of a soft avocado (mashed)
  • 2 leafs crisp butter or romaine  lettuce
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 slices sourdough or other high-quality or gluten free bread 


  1. Drain juice from canned salmon and place fish in a small bowl. Mash with a fork. Add hard boiled eggs and mash again, combining. Add remaining ingredients and stir until evenly combined. 
  2. Add mixture to bread, place lettuce leaves on top, and close sandwich with second piece of bread. 
  3. Hot tip: If packing for lunch, put mixture in a separate container from bread, and add just before you are ready to serve to avoid bread turning soggy!
