I love using avocados for quick meals like this one. Avocados go great with chicken, tuna or sardines (also check out my Sardine Stuffed Avocado).

Including avocado in your diet is the best way to boost your electrolyte intake without taking supplements. An average avocado has less than 4 grams of net carbs, is very high in fibre, healthy monounsaturated fats (MUFA) and contains 50% EMR potassium.

Salmon is high in healthy omega 3 fatty acids and potassium. When possible, opt for wild-caught salmon from sustainable sources. Farmed salmon may be inexpensive but is often high in toxic chemicals called PCBs, which are potential carcinogens linked to liver cancer in humans. Studies in animals also showed that PCBs weaken the immune system and affect thyroid hormone levels. If you fo for farmed, opt for organic.

If you are only cooking for yourself, use canned salmon as it's easier to adjust for one serving. Another benefit of using canned salmon is that you can make this tasty keto recipe in just five minutes!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I did not have dill - so I used fresh dried, Thai basil. And, I skipped to the salmon salad prep because I used canned red Sockeye salmon.

Hi, This looks great! How much dill did you use?
Thanks for all of your great recipes
