I used to always serve smoked salmon as an entree, with a side of mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. But ever since I tried this salad, it has been my favorite way of serving salmon!
If you intend to serve this over the holidays or any party, I would recommend taking any leftovers straight back to the refrigerator, because of the mayonnaise. Although I doubt there will be any leftovers! Whenever I make this for a family gathering, the whole bowl is emptied in minutes!
6 Tbsp. Hellman’s mayonnaise
1 1/2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 1/2 Tbsp. Daisy sour cream
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. poppy seeds
1 Tbsp. tarragon
asparagus, steamed but still firm
8 ounces cooked Penne pasta
Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. Yep, it’s that simple!
