5-Minute Avocado Salmon Salad

I love this for lunch or even dinner—packed with protein and healthy fats, it keeps me full for hours. Pair with rye crackers and raw veggies for a super satisfying (and satiating) meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small can salmon (or one 3-4-ounce cooked salmon fillet)
  • Dijon or stoneground mustard
  • No-salt seasoning
  • 2 Tbs shredded carrot (optional)
  • 1 avocado half

Directions: Mash salmon with mustard and seasoning to taste. Serve over avocado half. Serves 1.

Variations:

  • Substitute ½ cup flaked tuna or shredded chicken for salmon (as in this recipe). If making with tuna or chicken, add a splash of balsamic vinegar and/or a spoonful of nonfat Greek yogurt to moisten.
Fast, filling and flavourful!

Fast, filling and flavourful!

Or pack it up to go. Remember, lean protein + healthy fats + fibre = ENERGY!
