Roast Salmon and Avocado Salad with Sugar Free Ginger Dressing

Roast Salmon and Avocado Salad, Low Carb Roast Salmon and Avocado Salad, Modern Food Stories

The best salads pack in nutrients, flavour and crunch… who’s with me here? This Roast Salmon and Avocado Salad with Heritage Beetroot is one of my favourites that I make time and time again. The sugar free ginger dressing makes the whole dish sing. It’s also full of anti-inflammatory protection thanks to the fresh salmon and zingy dressing.

I made this healthy Salmon and Avocado Salad recipe for Bare Biology because Mel and the team have the best knowledge when it comes to healthy omega3s. If you’re looking for a high strength good quality fish oil that doesn’t taste fishy and has the highest level of EPA (that’s the anti inflammatory part) then i’d definitely recommend their Lion Heart. I’ve been taking it for over 4 years now and it’s been instrumental in keeping my autoimmune condition in remission.

For an AIP version of this Roast Salmon and Avocado Salad, leave out the nuts. For Keto, don’t add the beetroot. I even grew the baby watercress… and I didn’t kill it! Good in the kitchen I am, green fingered not so much! But i’m a trier and i’m determined this year to grow my own. I even converted my old BBQ top into a tub for carrots! Are you into growing your own too? What do you like to plant and where do you get your seeds? I’m looking for some new organic varieties to try. Jo x
