Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

Cook's Notes:
One-third of a medium avocado has 80 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, making it a great nutrient dense food choice. The avocado is virtually the only fruit that contains heart-healthy monounsaturated fat – good fat! California Avocados are naturally sodium, sugar and cholesterol free. Avocados can be added to many main meals and sides for an added nutritional boost.   
Add a side of Avocado Salsa to grilled Salmon and you have a heart healthy meal. Pair the meal with basmati white or brown rice. Salsa recipe adapted from Country Woman June/July 2017 
Cooking Tip: Salsa can be made a few hours ahead for flavors to meld.

  1. I only started eating avocados about two years ago and wonder why I didn't discover them prior. I LOVE them. Thank you for sharing new ways to use avocados.
