  • 1-1/2 pounds salmon fillets (1 inch thick)
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dill weed
  • 1/4 cup raspberry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Cut salmon fillets widthwise into 4-in. pieces. Grill, covered, on an oiled rack over medium-hot heat (or broil 4 in. from the heat) until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 12-15 minutes. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Debone, skin and flake salmon; place in a large bowl. Add celery, onion and dill. Combine the dressing ingredients; pour over salad and gently toss to coat. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate; stir before serving.

How to store grilled salmon salad

After you've made this salad, be sure to eat as quickly as possible. Cooked fish keeps for two to three days in the fridge, however, dressed salads are best eaten quickly. If you keep the components separate, we recommend these produce containers designed specially to keep lettuce and other veggies fresh.
