Salmon salad with tartar sauce

Salmon salad by Bake Bellissima

We had a few no-shows at a bbq and I was left with many leftover salmon fillets. Rather than serve them in the same way again, which would send my family fleeing to the nearest pizza joint, I gave them a new life as salmon salad with a delicious tartar sauce. After all, why should tuna have all the fun? Salmon can be delicious in a sandwich with this amazing dressing. Best of all, I am proud to say there are officially no more salmon leftovers!
