Healthy Salmon Salad Sandwiches
In this recipe, my idea was to keep it healthy. I know, I've added Mayo and you must be thinking, "is mayo healthy". Well, here's the deal.
Mayo is mostly fat. But "healthy fat".
Besides, that what you have is Salmon which is so good for health.
Instead of Lettuce, I have used Kale. Kale is the most nutritious food item on the planet.
Kale is rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Calcium, and Potassium when compared to lettuce.
