When you have homemade mayo on hand, a filling lunch is only minutes away. Aurelia and I ate these for lunch in a rush this last weekend and I made a mental note that I had to write down what I used because it was just too yummy and too easy to forget. Plus, it’s a high protein meal for Aurelia without the usual toddler lures or cheese, noodles, or sugar. Win win.

In a small bowl, flake the salmon with a fork. Mix in the mayo, lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper. Stir very well. Fold in the cucumbers and capers and spoon the salmon mixture evenly among the romaine leaves. Top with the chopped tomatoes and eat right away.
