Even though this recipe is insanely easy to make, there’s certainly no sacrifice on the taste. It’s made with my favorite creamy Primal Kitchen mayo, it’s flavorful and it’s kid-friendly too. In fact, Dietitian Jess’s daughter, Piper who is 5, gobbled down this salmon salad before Jess even had a chance to photograph it. So in just 5-minutes, Jess whipped up another serving of salmon salad so that she could snap a photo (hence the name of the recipe).
