Salmon Pasta Salad II

Ya know, we're getting really sick of this "having to make dinner every night" crap. I mean,'s getting old. So yeah...that's pretty much how we both felt the other night when neither of us had any idea what to make for dinner. I was just going to make some sort of pasta salad anyway, so instead of tuna fish, we decided to use salmon.

2 salmon fillets
Miracle Whip (optional)
salt and pepper

1 lb. cooked short pasta of your choice (I used rotini)
6-8 large radishes
2 stalks celery
1/2 small sweet onion
1/2 English cucumber
handful fresh parsley
5-6 fresh basil leaves
1 tsp. coriander
1 tsp. celery salt

Jim wanted the salmon to have a little flavor to them before they were added to the salad, so I sprinkled them with salt and pepper, coated the tops with Miracle Whip and baked them in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes.

In the meantime, cook the pasta.

I was feeling pretty lazy so I threw the radishes, celery, onion, cucumber, parsley and basil into the food processor and chopped everything up. You don't want a puree, so pulse it until you feel like you have the veggies to a nice size. Add the coriander, celery salt and salt and pepper.

Drain the pasta, flake the salmon and add everything to a large bowl. Add as much mayonnaise as you feel works for you and mix.

Mmmmmmmm, tasty salmon pasta salad.
