salmon salad

healthy salmon salad with avocados, radishes and crunchy pumpkin seeds

prep: 5'
cook: 7'

This is a regular salad at my household. I love salmon cooked, baked or even raw but this recipe is a good one for those who are not a big fan of the strong taste of salmon. By cooking it in the water you will get rid of the strong taste which still accounts for the vivid hue, desirable and truly delicious.
