Simple Salmon Pasta Salad


Today's Simple Salmon Pasta Salad tastes great made with our flash-frozen fillet portions, or with our canned Wild Red™ Sockeye Salmon, which makes it even easier.

This light seasonal recipe couldn't be simpler or more healthful.

From a reductionist perspective
which is inherently presumptious given the state of nutrition science, but can help us plan a rounded, healthful dietevery ingredient in it offers beneficial nutrients and food factors.
  • Wild Salmon is a superior source of omega-3s, protein, and vitamin D (calcium, too, if you use our Traditional Wild Red canned Sockeye).

  • Wild Salmon, colorful vegetables, and spices all feature ample amounts of potent antioxidants.

  • Vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals, and fibers, plus a variety of anti-cancer phytochemicals.

  • Pasta, which too often gets a bad rap, provides protein and brain-fueling carbs. And, if it is rinsed and chilled immediately after cooking, substantial amounts of its carbs convert to resistant starch, which stabilizes blood sugar.

1/2 lb rotini pasta
