Sardine Salad

Think you don’t like sardines? Just try them in this easy chopped Paleo Sardine Salad recipe, and you may be surprised. You can be playful and use the veggies you have on hand, swapping them out for the ones called for in the recipe if you have your own preferences for certain vegetables. Just chop everything up and throw it in a bowl, then toss it around to mix everything up, and enjoy! If you really, really don’t like sardines, you can use a can of tuna, a can of chicken, or any meat or fish you have. However, we highly encourage you to try the sardines, even if you think you’re not going to like them. They’re SO full of good omegas!

    These make 2 REALLY BIG salads. Are they really supposed to be for just 2 salads? This is delicious though!

    • Neely

      Grace – Yep. Since it’s mostly veggies, it’s still not excessively calorie dense.

  2. Amy B

    I just can’t get myself to eat sardines. What do you suggest as an alternative in this salad?

    • Neely

      Amy B – Canned salmon or tuna is a great alternative.

  3. Traci L

    I was just wondering about the squash, we chop it up raw right? You don’t cook it?
    Thanks :)

    • Neely

      Traci L – That’s correct. Just chop it up raw.

  4. Karen M

    This was enormous! I ate way more than I needed because it was just so good.

  5. Melissa G

    Yea this is for 3 or 4 ppl

  6. Deborah A

    This is an awesome salad. I love it!
    It could be for two people if this was their main course.

  7. Wendy M

    I’m highly allergic to avocado, so can I leave it out without compromising flavor? Or is there an acceptable substitute?

    • Aimee McNew

      Wendy,

      Yes, just go ahead and leave the avocado out! The salad should still taste great!
