Salmon & New Potato Salad – 2 Syns on Extra asy & Original Plans

salmon & new potato saladThis was a quick recipe I threw together as I had a nice salmon fillet but wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with it. I have had Salmon in the past and sprinkled dried herbs over the top to bake but I didn’t fancy a hot dinner as the weather has been lovely all week so I thought I would try a salad if I could make it without burning the salmon this time. It took a few minutes to prepare as I had to wait for the salmon and potatoes to cool but it was so nice I made it twice in the same week :-)
