Salmon salad is a light and delicious salad made with flaky salmon, fresh dill, chives and Greek yogurt. It's a nice alternative to your typical tuna salad and it's so simple to put together whether you cook salmon from scratch or use up some leftover cooked salmon. Serve this salad on thin bread with sliced cucumbers for refreshing tea sandwiches or just over greens.
