Baked Salmon Salad is so versatile you can use it as an appetizer spread with crackers or you can use it as a spread for sandwiches.

What I love most about this Baked Salmon Salad Spread is that the flavor isn’t too fishy tasting, which for me can sometimes be a turnoff.

However, the mild flavor of this Salmon Salad Spread is balanced nicely with bright, fresh lemon zest, dried dill weed, and a touch of sweet pickle relish.

**Please Note – The printable recipe card with detailed instructions, complete ingredient measurements, and nutritional information for making Baked Salmon Salad is available near the end of this post.

If you’re intimidated by cooking fish, don’t be. Baking the salmon for this Baked Salmon Salad couldn’t be easier than placing the fish on a baking sheet, seasoning the fillets with salt and pepper and popping them into a preheated 375-degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove the fish from the oven, allow it to cool, and then flake it with a fork.
