  • 1 piece of cooked salmon
  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise

  • half a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of grainy mustard

  • black pepper to taste


  • In a medium size bowl mix mayonnaise and Greek yogurt.   
  • Squeeze lemon juice from a half a lemon wedge and add the mustard into the bowl. Mix everything together with a spoon.  
  • Add chopped salmon into the bowl. Mix well. 
  • Add chopped celery and diced red onions into the bowl and mix well.
  • Next spread butter onto either a slice of French or Italian bread.  
  • Place chopped lettuce on the bread.
  • Scoop several spoonfuls of the salmon salad onto the lettuce. 
  • For both decoration and taste add several pieces of dill on top of the salmon salad.  
  • Garnish with a a fresh tomato on the side.

It’s that easy! If you like a little salt and pepper, add to taste. It is a great sandwich for either lunch or dinner.  If need you desire to serve this as an appetizer, slice the bread into smaller pieces. This sandwich goes great with a Danish beer too.  

We usually set the table with a Royal Copenhagen plate, a fork, a knife and a glass for the beer. When we have a Danish celebration, we traditionally have Danish beer and schnapps with an open-faced sandwich and say Skål frequently!
