Sockeye Salmon Salad Sandwiches


This recipe, from chef Kathy Casey, originally called for 1/3 cup light mayonnaise, but we tried it with 1/4 cup mashed cannellini beans and 2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil instead, to tastier, healthier effect (fewer omega-6 and saturated fats, with more fiber and antioxidants).

Use the mayo approach if you prefer; it will be smoother and bind the salmon up a bit better.

2 cans (7.5 oz each) traditional pack Wild Red canned sockeye salmon or 2 cans (6.5 oz each) skinless, boneless Wild Red canned sockeye salmon, drained and chunked
1/4 cup mashed cannellini (white) beans*
1 tablespoon organic extra virgin olive oil*
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon capers, drained, chopped if large (optional)
1/3 cup finely chopped fennel root (or celery)
1/3 cup finely diced onion
1/4 cup dill or sweet pickle relish, drained
Pinch of organic black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill or 1/2
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
8 slices whole-grain bread
24 thin slices cucumber
4 leaves green or red leaf lettuce

*Replace beans and oil with 1/3 cup light mayonnaise if you prefer.

  • Drain salmon and discard skin and bones (if any and if desired).

  • In a medium bowl, combine remaining salad ingredients. Add salmon and stir to combine well.
