Salmon Salad Sandwiches

My kids love tuna salad sandwiches, and I decided to make it with canned salmon this time. It was a great little lunch/snack for the kids. I decorated mine with chili sauce, while the kids had theirs with tomatoe ketcup. Served with sweet potatoe chips and seedless green grapes.

1 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
4 tsp capers, rinsed and chopped
1 tsp grated lime zest
2 Tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
6-8 small cans salmon packed in water, drained
1/3 cup each finely chopped celery and red onion

Whisk mayonnaise, capers, lemon zest and juice, and pepper in a bowl until blended. Stir in tuna, celery and onion.

Recipe adapted from Woman's Day magazine.

I also got tagged this morning by my gf Little Corner of Mine, and decided to add this on as I don't know when I'll be able to get to the computer again with the busy weekend ahead. So here goes...

1. A movie that made you laugh. Wild Hogs....those silly men!

2. A book that made you cry. Haven't had time lately, but I remembered the last one was The House of Mirth...."The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth."

3. A Best Friend. Hubs.

4. A favorite childhood memories. Listening to my grandma's stories.

5. Your favorite animal. Hubs!

6. Your favorite food. See-Food-And-Eat-Food.

7. An item of clothing you cannot do without. Clean Underwear!

8. Something you collect. Kitchen gadgets

9. Your favorite store to shop in. I shop online at different sites. :)

10.Your favorite flower. Rose
