California Avocado Salmon Lettuce Wrap

California Avocado Salmon Lettuce Wrap

Author: Manuel Villacorta, MS, RD

This flavorful lettuce wrap is a perfect for your gut. The yogurt dressing adds probiotics which, when combined with the prebiotic fiber allows the population of good bacteria in your gut to thrive.  In addition to that, the salmon and avocado provide good fats. California Avocados are a source of monounsaturated fats while the salmon contains omega-3s, both of which can help fight inflammation.

In addition to that, the salmon and avocado provide good fats. Each wrap is a nutrition powerhouse providing more than 100% daily value (DV) of vitamin K (115 mcg/100% DV), along with an excellent source of dietary fiber (29% DV), 80% DV vitamin C, 20% DV Iron and 20% DV Potassium.
