Avocado Salmon Salad (No gluten, soy, dairy, grains)

Updated: Feb 21, 2020

Avocado Salmon Salad (No gluten, soy, dairy, grains)

Move over tuna salad! Enter my favorite way to use up leftover salmon (and the avocados are great for a hangover... so I've heard). This quick salad is made with baked salmon, creamy avocados, crunchy nori, and spicy (but not too spicy) red pepper. Fresh lime juice and chopped cilantro tie everything together with a nice, bright punch of flavor.

Avocado Salmon Salad (No gluten, soy, dairy, grains)


  • 2 cups (roughly) cooked salmon. You could substitute 2 cans of canned salmon.

  • 2 ripe avocados, diced.

  • 1 handful of fresh cilantro, chopped.

  • 1 sheet of dried nori (sushi wrap). You could also substitute 2 chopped scallions for crunch.

  • 1/2 red chili pepper, finely diced. Red chili flakes or diced jalapeno will work, too.

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1 T coconut aminos

  • 1/2 T gochujang

  • 1 T spicy mayo. I use Nando's Perinaise because it is gluten-free and soy-free.

  • salt to taste


  • In a large bowl, combine the salmon, avocado, cilantro, nori (or onions), and red chili.

  • Pour the lime juice over the avocado to slow oxidation and keep it looking fresh.

  • In a small bowl, mix the coconut aminos, gochujang, and spicy mayo.

  • Pour the dressing into the larger bowl with the salad ingredients. Add salt to taste.

  • Toss gently. You don't want to mash up the avocado. ;)

  • Serve on its own or over the greens of your choice.
