  • Olive oil to drizzle
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste

For the Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup 2% plain yogurt / greek yogurt

  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste

For the Salad:

  • 1/2 large avocado (80 grams), diced
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley or basil, chopped
  • Optional arugula for serving
  • Optional Seasonings: cracked pepper, sea salt, lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Serve on a bed of arugula, with gluten free crackers, with cooked quinoa, or as desired. See notes for lunch meal prep options.

Notes

Storage: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days. For a make-ahead option, prepare the salmon salad without the dressing. Keep dressing separate until ready to serve.

Meal Prep Option: Layer 1/2 cup salmon salad at bottom of a jar followed by 1 cup cooked quinoa or gluten free pasta, a handful of arugula, and a squeeze of lemon juice on top. Add any additional seasoning or olive oil. When ready to serve, shake the jar, and pour the ingredients into a bowl.
