Smoked Salmon and Egg Salad Wraps

Now that I'm on holidays, I'm devoting myself to spending the summer enjoying the outdoors, hiking, swimming, reading, relaxing, and eating healthier. And what better way to do that than with my recipe for Smoked Salmon and Egg Salad Wraps.

It's a dish reminiscent of my childhood growing up in Winnipeg Manitoba where smoked salmon with cream cheese and hard boiled egg was a favourite combination to serve on chewy bagels. In my version we take deli favourites like dill pickle and cream cheese and combine them with smoked salmon, avocado, and baby spinach to make an unforgettable taste experience!

It's also a great way to ensure we're all getting our weekly requirements for omega 3 fatty acids - especially if we sneak tender smoked salmon into a wrap or sandwich like I have done today.




















Happy Tuesday all - I hope you enjoy!

  3. These sandwiches really do look and sound delicious (and healthy). I never thought of pairing my egg salad with salmon. Lyndsay, come by my blog, there's a recipe contest by Kraft you might be interested in (and a giveaway).

  4. I just read your comment, I KNEW this was something you would be interested in! In fact, when I first found out about it, I thought of you. Surely you want to be entered into the giveaway though, don't you? It'll be so much easier to cook with Philly if you're wearing a Philly apron. It'll inspire you! :o) Just come back by and tell me your favourite way to use Philly!
