There’s no doubt this is perfect for a light summer lunch, but using Bear & Wolf canned wild salmon from Costco makes it more than doable any time of year. (I know, this sounds like a sponsored post, but it’s totally not. Just an enthused fan here.) The tarragon, shallots and lemon work so well together, and the carrots lighten the already light salad up even more. Serve over greens, on toast, inside a hollowed-out tomato, whatever your fancy.
