Salmon salads are vibrant and versatile, making them perfect for lunch or a light dinner. Try out this King Salmon Salad that is packed with flavor!

While any of Heinen’s salmon fillets would be delicious in this recipe, if King Salmon is in season, I highly suggest you use it as the flavor is simply unbeatable. Caught fresh from the Columbia River and shipped overnight to our stores, Heinen’s King Salmon offers unrivaled freshness.

Served atop a vibrant green salad, Heinen’s King Salmon is complemented by cucumbers, tomatoes, greens, feta cheese and crispy potato sticks, creating the ultimate combination of flavors and textures.

To top it all off (literally) Heinen’s lemon dill sauce, located in the Seafood Department, can be transformed into a dressing. There’s nothing better than fresh salmon with lemon and dill!
