Dijon Dill Salmon Salad
Muuna Cottage Cheese brings this creamy salad together and takes the protein up a notch!
“When I say this is a protein powerhouse of a lunch, I’m not kidding in the least. Between the salmon, the roasted chickpeas (love their pop of crunchy texture in this!) and the cottage cheese, this lunch has some serious staying power.”
