Salmon, Avocado Salad with Creamy Dill Dressing

 

This salad has been on my need to make list for 3 years! At this point I can’t even remember where the inspiration came from but I am so happy that I finally got around to making it!

Salmon & Avocado Salad with Creamy Dill Dressing

There is a lot of bold flavour and texture in this salad. Spicy radishes, creamy avocado, pickled onions and flaky salmon, all topped in a creamy dill dressing. It’s light, refreshing and delicious!

This would be a great salad to serve to guests as a light lunch during the warm summer months as it is filling enough to stand on its own. Because the salmon is served cold, you could cook it up to a day in advance and simply break it into flakes before serving.

Alternatively you can also swap the flaked salmon for smoked salmon if you prefer, although I personally think the flavour is a bit strong for this salad.

The dressing can be made a day or two in advance, but I don’t recommend adding it to the salad until right before serving so that the lettuce stays fresh and crisp. Also the avocado should be added at the very end so that it maintains its vibrant green colour.

The pickled onions take just 30 minutes to make and are so worth the effort, don’t skip them as the acidic kick of flavour they add to each bite is so good!
