Canned Salmon Burgers with Dill Greek Yogurt Sauce

Hello, hello! I cannot tell you how excited I am to be back on here and to have the time to dedicate to this blog again. I missed it, as I love developing recipes, talking all things nutrition, and sharing scientific-based knowledge on how to improve your life.

For those of you who don’t follow me on social media or know me in real life, let me introduce myself. I am Danielle Cahalan- a wife, dog mom of two rescue pups, runner, yogi, recipe developer, and nutrition student aspiring to be a Registered Dietitian. Without getting too deep too quickly while still remaining transparent, I must tell you that I struggled with an eating disorder for 15 years. It ran my life for the majority of that time, but throughout my ups and downs, I learned so much about health, well-being (physical, emotional, and mental), and the importance of loving yourself through a solid relationship with food, self-care and wellness rituals, and accepting love and help from those who care about you.

I will continue to be transparent and real with you through this blog- as I am doing it for me, for you, and to provide healthy, yummy, affordable, and easy recipes you can use + lifestyle tips to help elevate your life. I hope you enjoy the content, as my goal is to feed YOU happy!

  2. Form patties with 1/2 cup- should make 4.
  3. Heat electric skillet or large skillet over stovetop to medium-high heat. Add olive oil. Place patties in skillet.
  4. Cook 5 minutes on each side, monitoring as to not to burn.
  5. Remove from heat. Let cool. In the meantime, mix ingredients to make dill Greek yogurt sauce.
  6. Assemble burgers with whole wheat burger buns, patties, sauce and toppings. I suggest layering the bottom bun with spinach and avocado slices, spreading the sauce on top of the patty, and adding a tomato or whatever else you fancy! Made a side of chili air-fried sweet potatoes.
