Salmon Pasta

This pasta dish is a great way to turn leftover salmon into a new meal.  Plus, since the salmon is in small flakes and tossed with a lot of other ingredients, it is a sneaky way to get your family to stock up on heart-healthy omega-3’s.  You can serve it warm or cold as a pasta salad for a perfectly light summer dish.

    We just tried this salad and substituted the salmon for some of the fresh yellow tail tuna from last weekend’s fishing trip. It was delicious!
