  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the fusilli; return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well and rinse with cold water. Transfer cooled pasta to a large bowl.
  2. Toss the carrot, onion, cucumber, celery, and salmon with the pasta; mix well.
  3. Combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl; mix well. Pour sauce over pasta mixture. Mix well to coat evenly.

Great tasting salad! I made this with leftovers in mind so I waited until serving to add the cucumber - worked out perfectly. It's also good with a handful of frozen peas added at the last minut...

I added a lot more lemon, salt and pepper and also used a generous amount of dill. Came out great!

Rather bland for us. We like spicy.

Excellent! I added dill weeds and replaced the regular onion by red onion. I didn't have any cucumber so I added a carrot. Easy and delicious, perfect for lunch!

Very good recipe. I used to make this but with albacore. I ran across this recipe and it never really crossed my mind to use salmon. I used salmon fillets and cut it up.

Easy way to use up a couple of packets of pink salmon that I had on hand! I didn't have cucumbers - so used green pepper instead - still came out great! Followed another reviewer's tip of usin...

I added Penne instead of fusili since I had those at home. Tasted great!
