I love this easy, quick, low-carb dinner! This smoked salmon salad was inspired by the simple one found at Whole Foods -- I just recreated it in my kitchen. It's fresh, delicious, and full of healthy fat. If you can, make the smoked salmon salad early and chill it for a few hours to let the flavors meld
Serves: 2-4
  • 3 tablespoons good mayonnaise (I use Hellmann's or Best Foods)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice, plus a bit more for spritzing
  • 2-3 grinds fresh pepper
  • scant 1/2 pound smoked salmon, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
  • salt
  • 2 ripe avocados, halved, pitted, and scooped out of the peel with a big spoon
  1. Whisk mayonnaise, lemon juice, and pepper together in a medium bowl. Add smoked salmon and green onions, tossing to combine. Taste to see if you need to add another grind of pepper. When the smoked salmon salad is adjusted to your liking, chill it for a few hours if you're able to, to let the flavors meld. Lightly salt the four avocado halves and spritz them with a bit of lemon juice. Then stuff each avocado half with a quarter of the mixture, really piling it up. Serve immediately.

    Try using Kewpie Japanese Mayonnaise it is so delicious. Kewpie is a high quality mayo with delicious ingredients and adds so much to any recipe the requires mayonnaise. If you don;t have any Asian grocery stores near you you can make your own. Recipe can be found on you tube.

    Do you precook the salmon or purchase it cooked?

      I purchase the lovely, fatty smoked salmon trimmings from Whole Foods — they’re perfect for this! But I’ve also seen great recipes for smoked salmon online and it’ll work just fine to use homemade, also.
