Wild Salmon + White Bean Salad

This meal came about this week as a way to clean out our pantry.  I am trying hard not to go to the grocery store everyday to save money and work with what we have on hand.  This salad knocked my socks off, I loved it.  It was so fresh and light. Plus it took less than 10 minutes to make.   I used canned  Wild Alaskan Salmon, which I love, but if you don't like Salmon you could sub tuna or if you want it totally vegetarian you could add Cauliflower or another type of bean to hearty it up.  I assembled it and then just tossed together right before dinner.

2 tablespoons capers

What bowl do you use to make all of your salads in? I always love the presentations! Plus the bowl looks big enough to toss the salad without a problem :)
