Salmon Salad on Rye

You’ll be hooked on this spruced-up salmon salad sandwich. Try using grainy mustard for a spread, if desired.

2 – 6 oz (170 g) wild salmon filets or 2 – 5.6 oz (160 g) cans wild salmon, drained
1/3 cup (80 mL) plain, low-fat Greek yogourt
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 Tbsp (30 mL) fresh chopped dill
1 shallot, minced
1 Tbsp (30 mL) capers
1/2 tsp (2 mL) dried coriander
1/4 tsp (1 mL) black pepper
1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) cayenne
2 tsp (10 mL) horseradish
8 slices whole rye bread
1 cup (250 mL) green cabbage, thinly sliced
1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 350 F (160 C).

Bake salmon filets for 15 to 20 minutes, until fish flakes easily. Set aside to cool. Once cooled, flake into a small bowl.

In large bowl, stir together yogourt, lemon juice, dill, shallot, capers, coriander, pepper, cayenne, and horseradish. Add salmon to bowl and mix well. Spread salmon mixture on 4 slices of bread; top each with cabbage, cucumber, and remaining bread slices.
