This easy salmon casserole makes a nutritious weeknight meal. The breadcrumb topping becomes wonderfully crunchy in the oven. Fresh dill brightens up the fish and vegetables, and the comforting combination of cream of mushroom soup and cheddar cheese brings it all together for a go-to dinner in no time at all.

Serve with noodles or mashed potatoes and coleslaw.
