Avocado Salmon Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

When the days begin to warm up, we begin to look for fresh, light dishes. We crave meals made with the bounty of the season and to shed the heavy meals we indulged in over the winter. This dish is perfect for spring.

Inspired by this romantic season, I assembled this easy and refreshing salad. The prime season for avocados being late winter and early spring, I felt this was a great reason to include them in my salad. Here, creamy avocado is mixed with fresh buttery salmon, mimicking the combo we often find in sushi, tartars, sandwiches, and more. In this recipe, I paired the salmon with a citrus vinaigrette for tang and a powerful punch of flavor.

It’s about this time that most people typically start thinking about gathering with friends outdoors, having picnics in parks or private parties on the terrace. When friends come knocking, do you have any idea what you are going to serve? If you’re looking for an easy, refreshing, and elegant idea, you’ve found one.
