Salmon And Bacon Salad

Salmon And Bacon Salad

The perfect meal for two is ready in less than half an hour and contains many vital nutrients in the physical form of salmon, avocado and mixed greens. This will become your latest and greatest go-to meal, in no time flat. It is full of healthy fats and beneficial proteins, just as it is low in carbs, i.e. it fits into the category of energizing Keto meals.

If you haven’t experienced the benefits of avocado oil yet, now is the time to make a small investment in a quality bottle. Avocado oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, along with vitamins A, D and E, at the same time it has a high smoke point which is perfect for dressing the salmon with before grilling. It has been said that it lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, plus you can fry eggs in it to go with your bacon and maple syrup waffles. We digress, but we are excited all the same for healthy salads just as much as we are for heartwarming breakfasts.

Moving onto the creamy avocado dressing, you’ll want to hunt down the ripest avocado you can find. Not overripe, just perfectly ripe, so that you can lightly mash it with a fork as it blends in with the red wine vinegar and olive oil, complemented by the minced garlic and chives – the ultimate satisfaction, served superbly on the plate.
