Surprisingly tasty for such a simple recipe! I used shallots and added extra mayo. Thank you!
Very yummy. How long is it good for?
Hi Heather, easily a couple of days in the fridge.
We love it! Easy, simple and delicious.
When I have a hankering for a mac salad, this is the one I go to. Only addition, sweet bell peppers. Don’t leave out the Tabasco, it adds flavor, not much heat. Thanks, Elise, as always two thumbs up!
I’m so glad you liked it Kim! Sweet red bell peppers would be a terrific addition to this salad.
Yum ! This is a wonderful summer dinner. Thank you.
I used some frozen Coho salmon I baked last week.The salmon is so mild compared to canned, its hard to tell its salmon.Thanks, new spring go to.
I added grapes (cut in half) to mine. And didn’t add the celery or tobasco. I also added chopped dill pickles.
Hi Christina, I love your addition of grapes and dill pickles!
Used whatever pasta I could find, substituted whole milk Greek yogurt for the mayo since I didn’t have any and tossed in a tbsp of cider vinegar to make up for it. Other than that I pretty much followed the recipe. My new go to after a workout, may try it with sardines or mackeral next time. Great!
Very good and easy to make
Took it to picnics, it was great. Everyone loved it.
I used to add dill but have changed to tarragon for years now. I use dried and just adjust to taste. Tarragon goes with fish and everyone loves that different flavor. I get asked to make all the time. I also throw some ranch in it too mixed with the mayo its not as heavy but dont use too much that it overpowers salad. I dont use Tabasco either
I’ve made salmon salad similar to this for almost 40 years. I use fresh or frozen peas in place of the celery, omit the garlic and dill, and use paprika in place of Tobasco. This is always part of our holiday meals.
I made this salad today. I did omit a few ingredients. (Tabasco, garlic, and celery). This recipe is amazing and turned out better then I could have imagined. The best part, is my two picky sons love it! This is going in my recipe book for sure!
I tried this pasta with red salmon and use ketchup instead of mayonnaise with freshly squeezed lemon and chopped cucumber…it was wonderful,my husband asked if j went out and got take out,won’t give away my secret,he loved it. I am from Jamaica.
I found your site thru Google as I was looking for a salmon pasta salad recipe. You recipe is as good or better than any I’ve ever seen.
I don’t care for the herbs or Tabasco, so I just leave them out.
That’s part of the beauty of a simple recipe. You can add or subtract whatever you don’t care for and the basic recipe doesn’t change at all. Thanks you for having this site available to all the guys like me, who like to cook for their wives. Your recipes make it easy to impress my wife with new dishes all the time. We both enjoy this salmon recipe and it is delicious!
I’m so glad you like the recipe Herb!
Just made this — never tried salmon salad before. It is SO freakin’ good! Thank you!
Just tried this and it was so delicious. Surprisingly filing and customizable. A great base.
Delicious and simple. Thanks.
Excellent! This one will make it into the regular rotation. It is also easy to make substitution and additions based on what we have on hand. I really like having an excellent base recipe that I can adjust as needed.
My kids love Mac and Salmon as I call it…. Salmon is so easy to cook with.
