  1. Place salmon in a plastic or glass container and rub both sides with the salt. Cover the container and chill in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  2. Rinse salmon thoroughly and soak in a bowl of cold water for 30 minutes, changing the water once, after 15 minutes. Remove fish from bowl and pat fish dry with paper towels.
  3. Dice fish and place in a mixing bowl. Add tomato, onion and green onions; toss gently to combine.
  4. Mound salmon mixture onto each avocado half. Garnish with cilantro or chives and serve immediately.

Note: If onion is not sweet, soak the diced onion in cold water for 10 minutes to remove bitterness.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with crostini.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
