It’s lunchtime and what is ongoing on your plate? I prepare many different versions of my favorite salads each day and I pack plenty of protein, and healthy fats into my salads to make sure I am getting the right foods to fuel my lifestyle. Lately, my passion has been creating multitudes of recipes with canned salmon. While some of them have not been my favorite or best creations, the Low Carb Salmon Salad With Cornichons recipe has definitely flared my fuel. I am abiding by a LCHF Lifestyle, trying to see if that in fact is more healthy and a more beneficial lifestyle for me and these are the foods that are perfect for the Low Carb High Fat lifestyle. I have the perfect lunchtime solution, it’s quick, easy and you won’t believe the ingredients that are inside. Let’s Lavishly live food out loud and create a low carb salmon salad with cornichons, that is an easy-to-create lunchtime or dinnertime meal.
Low Carb Salmon Salad With Cornichons
You might first want to know what in the world a cornichon is? Cornichons are almost like tiny gherkin pickles, but they taste a whole lot better. I found mine in Trader Joe’s where I spend a lot of time food shopping. I don’t rinse the salt off of the cornichons because when you are on Low Carb High Fat diets you often need to replenish sodium that you may not be otherwise getting, so I don’t rinse to get the brine off and it does not matter if you would.
Another thing you might want to know is why I use pickling cukes rather than the traditional English Seedless Cucumber. I personally feel like I am gambling in Vegas every-time I buy a English Cuke, I never know if it is in fact going to be seedless or if I am going to core out the seeds. I buy the picking cucs, long, thin and hard so I know they will be tasty when peeled and placed in a salad.
- 1 5 oz can Boneless Skinless Pink Salmon
- 2-4 Cornichons
- 1 Medium Pickling cucumber
- 1 Cup of Shredded Romaine Optional
- 1 TBSP EVOO
- Dash of Freshly Milled Pepper
- 1 Medium Avocado
- 1 Dash of Hot Sauce Optional
- Open and Drain Salmon, and then place in bowl and separate all with a fork.
- Chop the Cornichon and add in to the salmon, do not rinse.
- Peel and Chop Pickling Cucumber and place into other ingredients
- Peel, Chop and add avocado in
- Spritz all with Freshly Milled Pepper
- Place One handful of Romaine if selected as an option to a plate
- Scoop This salad onto the Romaine
- If you like a little flavor, add on the Hot Sauce, and enjoy
The avocado should be ripe, but not mushy as that totally ruins the appeal of this dish because the salmon is already a soft texture. You do want to be mindful to blends and if you are not adding in romaine for crunch, you will be out of luck with differential tasting blends in your mouth.

The hot sauce adds a little heat to things and I like this as it keeps the taste interesting in lieu of salad dressings and goopy things like Mayo(which I can’t have). This is great with some flax crackers, served in Parmesan Crisps or over a bed of lettuce. I do tend to make this fresh as the avocado is not a friend of the fridge once peeled and cubed.
