    Baked Salmon Variation

    by Janet C

    I always make this recipe without the spinach leaves and refrigerate overnight to make the absolute best salmon salad sandwiches! They are always a huge hit at showers, cocktail parties and luncheons. I am always asked to bring them to any special occasion family or friends may have. Just a couple of scoops of good mayonnaise and voila! – gourmet sandwiches!
