Sockeye Salmon Three Bean Salad

Our canned sockeye salad idea reflects a European sensibility, and while cool in terms of temperature, it features the warming sensations of mustard and pepper.

Sockeye Salmon Three Bean Salad 

Cook time 20 minutes 
Serves 4

2 cans sockeye salmon
traditional pack (7.5 oz) or skinless-boneless (6.5 oz)
8 oz tender green beans, halved
1 cup canned cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup canned pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cucumber, chopped into chunks
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
6 green onions, finely sliced
Handful young fresh spinach leaves or watercress

  • Drain and chunk Alaska salmon, removing skin and bones (if any). Cover and set aside.

  • Cook green beans in lightly salted boiling water for 4‒5 minutes, until just tender. Rinse with cold water and drain well. Transfer to a salad bowl; add cannellini and pinto beans.

  • Add cucumber, cherry tomatoes, green onions and spinach. Toss together to mix; add salmon chunks and toss again gently.

3 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive or macadamia nut oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons grainy mustard
Sea salt and organic black pepper

  • Mix together olive oil, lemon juice and grainy mustard. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over salad just before serving, tossing gently to combine with ingredients.
