Broiled Salmon with Avocado Cream

salmon and avo dressing
Inspired by Lisa Leake’s 100 Days of Real Food blog, where she often showcases the “real/whole food” lunches she packs for her daughters, I have set out to archive meals that  revolve around healthy,  low-GI foods with flavors that will satisfy the palette.  Tonight, I topped off broiled salmon with an avocado cream dressing and found it to be quite satiating.  Aside from making a salmon dish that I genuinely enjoyed (not my favorite fish, but I’m eating it on a weekly basis while pregnant), I could definitely envision using this dressing as a veggie dip, taco topper, or in a variety of different wraps.
