I've made this recipe three times. The first time, I followed it exactly and did find it to be a bit salty. However, the underlying taste was still good.... Decided to try it a second time, but changed the amount of the Seasoned Salt to 1/2 tsp. Big difference! This time, I felt it was PERFECT!! Followed the change my third attempt and served it up for a baby shower buffet. It was the first to disappear and I had many ask for the recipe!! Definitely would recommend it.

I found this to be extremely salty. I measured everything. I love salmon salad but this one is going into file #13..sorry

This is a very good change of pace from the typical tuna salad. I used more mayo for moisture, the juice of one whole lemon, and less salt, about 1/2 teaspoon. For more flavor I added 1/2 teaspoon curry powder, 1/2 teaspoon Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper, 1 clove caramelized garlic crushed, 2 jalapenos chopped, 1 tablespoon capers rinsed and drained, and fresh ground pepper to taste. Served on a bed of fresh spinach, splashed with balsamic vinaigrette.

Caution: this recipe can be salty. I took notice of one of the reviews who mentioned it was too salty and I left out the seasoned salt. Still, I found it salty to my taste, but tolerable. The canned salmon I used had 240mg of sodium for 1/4 cup of fish. This recipe is delicous but be careful.

This is a really good salad. What I need to do next time is to double batch this recipe. The only thing that I did differently was use miracle whip instead of mayonnaise. I will definely make this again!!!

This is a great base recipe, I seasoned to my taste so I didn't suffer from the "too much salt" issue some did. Old Bay seasoning worked great in this, and this salad was tasty in a sandwich, thank you for posting!

This was excellent. I made it with two cans worth of leftover salmon from last night with a just of touch of smoked salmon I needed to use up. The combo of green onions, celery and dill add just the right flavor. I used lime juice as that's what I had, and no salt due to the smoked salmon. Yummy. Thanks for sharing this one.

I'm glad I took the suggestion of the other reviewers. This was delicious without any added salt.
