I am an official ambassador of Chicken of the Sea! Chicken of the Sea provided me with a Pink Up Your Lunch Kit for the purpose of this post, as well as compensation for my time. As always, all opinions expressed in this post are mine.
Woohoo! We’re talking lunch today! One of my favorite and easiest to make go-to recipes is pasta salad. You can make it ahead of time and have a couple of days of lunches ready for you (and the kids love it too!) Seriously, if you’re having your girlfriends over for a weekend lunch or you’re getting ready for a busy week ahead you will love this new way to #PinkUpYourLunch!
We’re celebrating #NationalSalmonDay with Chicken of the Sea! Check out our Best Ever Salmon Pasta Salad recipe below! (Scroll down for a money saving coupon!)
2 cans Chicken of the Sea Salmon
1 16oz box pasta shells
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 tbs. caper and dill mustard
½ lemon, squeezed
¼ cup leeks-chopped
¼ cup green onion-diced
¼ cup sweet onion-diced
¼ cup celery-diced
3 sprigs fresh dill-chopped
1 cup fresh mozzarella pearls
salt and pepper-to taste
(Any of the Chicken of the Sea Salmon pouches could be substituted. I particularly think the smoked Salmon one would really make this recipe be even more amazing! Please remember to use 2 pouches.)
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta to desired firmness. Al dente is preferred. Drain the pasta and rinse in cold water. Place in a bowl and chill while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. Drain the salmon completely. In another bowl, combine the Salmon, mayonnaise,mustard and lemon juice. Next add the leeks, 2 kinds of onions, celery and the dill. Fold together. Now you’ll combine your pasta with the salmon mixture and gently add your mozzarella pearls. Finish off with salt and pepper and you’re done!
