    I hate tuna salad but I love salmon. I substituted dill for capers and added a little chopped onion. Yummy!  -  21 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was really good. I made the following revisions: I used 4 tablespoons of Mayo with Olive Oil only. I used about 2 T of fresh dill, 1/2 tsp of lemon juice, no capers, 1 cup of chopped celery, 1/8 tsp of garlic powder, and fresh pepper. I also threw in 2 green onions sliced small. Very tasty and now I can get find another use for canned salmon other than salmon cakes! Thanks!  -  06 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My husband and I loved this recipe! I used left-over grilled salmon rather than the canned. I added chopped walnuts, cut back on the celery and capers, and used a couple of shakes of cayenne rather than the black pepper. I served it on bagels with slices of smoked mozzarella, chopped tomatoes and lettuce. FABULOUS!!  -  20 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
