Stewart posted her creation on Instagram, writing, “A tasty way to turn last night’s leftover salmon into today’s lunch. There’s no mayo here, this salmon salad is made with a creamy-crunchy mixture of cottage cheese, raisins, celery, and walnuts.”
What a delicious mixture of sweet and salty flavors, with crunchy and soft textures. The best part? Just how simple it is to make. First, create the pickled onions. Then combine the raisins, celery, walnuts, cottage cheese, and remaining lemon juice. Add in the salmon, put it on some toast, and add those onions on top. It’s seriously that simple and only takes 45 minutes to prep and put together. We can only imagine how nice and refreshing this dish must be on a hot summer’s day.
