This simple dish can be made a little more elegant with freshly poached salmon instead of the canned. But canned or fresh, salmon is delightful, refreshing and super healthy, especially in this salad!

Ingredients

  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp honey
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 (12-oz) can salmon, drained and broken into bite-size pieces
  • 2 avocados, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 red onions
  • 3 tbsp raw sunflower seeds

Directions

In a small bowl mix together the lime juice, honey and cayenne until well combined. Set aside.

In a large bowl assemble the salmon, avocado and onion slices and gently toss with the lime-honey dressing. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes for all the flavors to come together.

If desired, sprinkle sunflower seeds over salad before serving.
