This spicy salmon salad bowl is quick and healthy. It uses canned salmon and pre-washed salad greens for a perfect weeknight meal.
I am obsessed with making this weeknight salmon salad. It does not need cooking and is light, healthy, and satisfying. It is quick to make, thanks to canned salmon and pre-washed salad greens.
Canned salmon is such a quick and healthy dinner option. I love to mix it with something spicy and crunchy.
Don’t let the ingredient list fool you. This salad is quick and easy.
I always have canned salmon, mayo, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and sriracha handy. These pantry staples are used in a variety of recipes. Just mix them together and you’ve got a delicious salmon salad.
Save time prepping by using pre-washed salad greens and pre-cut bagged carrots. I do recommend slicing your own cucumbers, radishes, and avocados.
Put it all together and dress it with a blend of olive oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and sugar.
Then top it with nori seaweed snacks and sesame seeds to give it serious sushi vibes.

That’s all folks. Supper’s ready!
