You may have noticed 2 things: I love sandwiches and salmon! They are two of my guilty pleasures. I don’t eat sandwiches every day but at least twice a week! Easy to prepare and you can toss anything you have in your fridge: okay: almost anything!


For today’s easy lunch recipe, I am sharing this salmon baguette sandwich with a  salad as a side. The key for a successful sandwich is the bread: obviously! I used a fresh baguette from one of our local bakeries. We have  a wide selection of bakeries in Montreal. I don’t advise you to visit them often or you may end up addicted and put on some weight!
