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!
