Open Face Salmon Salad Sandwich

DSC_0591

Awhile back, I bought several cans of healthy wild Alaskan salmon at Costco. Yesterday, I finally decided to use it and made a salmon salad. Instead of using regular bread, I chose brioche toasts, which has fewer calories than bread. I reduced the amount of calories by substituting half the mayonnaise with plain nonfat Greek yogurt. Crunchy sliced cucumber took the place of lettuce. This is a delicious and light meal to whip up during the busy work week. For those who follow my blog, you know that my husband is a finicky eater and he gave me a thumbs up!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (6 ounce) can wild Alaskan salmon
  • 2 tablespoons organic mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons organic plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 5 slices of Trader Joe’s Organic Sweet Bread and Butter Pickles, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 6 Trader Jacques’ Brioche Toasts
  • 24 sliced cucumbers (enough to cover the brioche toast)
  • Parsley for garnish
