Chili Lime Salmon Salad

I know people who just are not a fan of the taste of salmon. I, on the other hand, love it. I think it is so rich and decadent. And the best thing about it is that salmon is so healthy for you. It tastes like a guilty pleasure, but there is no need for feeling guilty. Every time I eat salmon, I wonder why I don't eat it more often. Then I remember, it's because it can be quite pricey.
