This Salmon Avocado Salad is made with my two favorite super foods – avocado and wild salmon. I could eat this every day!
Salmon Avocado Salad
With the warmer weather, all I want to eat is salad these days. A big green salad with salmon, tomatoes and avocado is usually what I crave when I want to eat quick healthy, low carb meal. You can see more salad recipes from the archives.
If you want to make this for lunch, you can easily cut this recipe down to 1 or 2 servings.
What is The Healthiest Way of Cooking Salmon?
The best ways to cook salmon is by using any method that will keep it moist and tender. Overcooked salmon will become dry and awful, so be sure to watch your cooking times. One of my favorite ways to prepare salmon is using my “Quick Broil” method. Another method I love is cooking salmon in the air fryer. To do so, you can cook it 400F 7 to 10 minutes, like I did for this Air Fryer Parmesan Salmon recipe. If you want to grill the salmon, you can use the method I used for this Grilled Salmon Bruschetta recipe.

- In a large bowl, combine the red onion with olive oil, 1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon remaining Dijon, garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste; let it sit about 5 minutes, so the flavor of the onion mellows.
