Salmon Salad

Looking for an alternative to tuna salad?  Try this: Salmon Salad using fresh (not canned) salmon.  A lovely summer lunch or light dinner choice.  You could certainly serve this as a sandwich, but I loved it on a bed of shredded lettuce.  While it is delicious at the time you make it, it's even better hours or a day later.

SALMON SALAD (4 servings)

2 cups cooked, flaked salmon
2 hard-boiled eggs, crushed
1 red or green bell pepper, diced
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and diced (I prefer small pickling cucumbers {2}, not seeded and only partially peeled.....much sweeter)
1/2 cup chopped sweet onions
4-5 Tbsp mayo, or enough to moisten
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, optional (I used it, but just a sprinkle)
1/2 lemon, juice

In a large bowl, gently toss together the salmon and crushed hard-boiled eggs.  In another bowl, combine bell pepper, cucumber, onion, and mayo.  Add seasonings and stir to combine.  Pour mixture over salmon, add lemon juice, and toss light to combine.  Serve over lettuce or as a sandwich.
