Salmon Waldorf Salad on Whole Wheat Recipe - DIY Sandwich!

Salmon Waldorf Salad  for Dinner
With 5 kids ages 3- to 8-years old in our household, we do dinner early.  Sometimes after school the kids are so hungry that a snack won't do - and they will eat an entire dinner by 4:00pm!  Come 6:00pm and beyond, a healthy snack (or two) can suffice until breakfast time.  

In order to keep the kids' hunger in check, I have to be able to prepare dinner quickly - otherwise they will start helping themselves to food and spoil their appetites!  One healthy meal that I can prepare in about 2 minutes I call "Salmond Waldorf Salad".  It's canned salmon with walnuts pieces and apple slices - in a sandwich of Dempster's 100% Whole Wheat bread.

  5. My kids have a voracious appetite after school to, LOL. We are just trying to introduce more fish into their diets and I think this would be a great start. Minus the walnuts due to allergies and we are good to go!
