Salmon Salad in an Avocado Half
When I made the Lemon Baked Salmon last week, I intentionally made more than we would need for dinner so that I would be able to make a salmon salad. I had originally intended to mix a bit of mayo into the salad, but the lemon infused salmon looked so lovely tossed with the red onion and celery, that I didn't want to make it heavy with the mayo. Instead of the mayo I used olive oil and lemon juice, and tossed in a bit more minced dill. Served in a perfectly ripe avocado half, this gave me two days of wonderful lunchtime dining. This recipe could easily be double or tripled.
1 celery rib, diced small
1/4 small red onion, diced small
2 tbs. extra virgin olive oil
2 tbs, lemon juice
1 tbs. minced fresh dill
large pinch of coarse salt
a generous grinding of black pepper
Flake the salmon into a bowl, but don't break it up too small. Lightly toss in the remaining ingredients. Serve chilled in a avocado half or over chopped lettuce. This makes two generous servings.
