Salmon Burgers with Greek Yogurt

Now that Thanksgiving is over, and Christmas is on our heels, it’s tough to stay on track. I have been trying to come up with what’s for dinner as I multi task work, the kids, and extra holiday related tasks. These Salmon Burgers with Greek Yogurt are always worth preparing, and my 3 kids always love them. Feel free to serve on a bun or just on a bed of greens. Canned salmon is one of the most calcium-rich, non-dairy foods. One 3.5 ounce serving with the bones contains two thirds as much calcium as a cup of milk. For women and children especially, consuming plenty of calcium is important for building and maintaining strong bones and reducing the risk of bone fracture later in life.¬†Alaska canned salmon provides high quality protein that is easy and safe to digest by people of all ages.¬†In less than 30 minutes, you’ll have something super healthy for dinner for the entire family.
