Try this Avocado Salmon Salad by Wellness with Edie to spruce up your weekday lunches, pack in a kid’s lunch box, or replace the monotonous tuna or chicken salad. Edie is a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, and her recipe is light and bright to go great with your summer greens popping up all over the place!


  • 2 cans of wild-caught, Alaska salmon from Wild for Salmon Bone-In is fine for this recipe! They are cooked through, small, and add a punch of protein to your recipe. If you prefer to skip them, however, try our bone-less cans here.  
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 T dijon mustard
  • 2 t minced garlic
  • ¼ capers
  • ⅓ fresh dill
  • Lemon juice
  • Black pepper
  • Red chili flakes (optional)



  • Mash together the canned salmon and pitted avocado in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add dijon, minced garlic, and lemon juice. Mix together.
  • Gently fold in your capers, chopped dill and spices to taste.
  • Best served chilled - stick the whole bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes or in the fridge for 30.

This will serve 2-4 folks depending on how hungry they are. Or, store in an air-tight container in the fridge for tomorrow!
