California Avocado Salmon Bean Salad

California Avocado Salmon Bean Salad

Author: Manuel Villacorta, MS, RD

This flavorful salad is a perfect for your gut. The yogurt dressing adds probiotics which, when combined with a range of fiber, allows the population of good bacteria in your gut to thrive. One-third (50 g) of a medium California Avocado contains 11% dietary fiber, 30-40% of which is soluble fiber. 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.

Overall, this salad is nutrition packed with essential nutrients including more than 100% of your daily value (DV) for vitamin B3 (120% DV), vitamin B12 (220% DV), an excellent source of dietary fiber (29% DV), vitamin C (80% DV), vitamin K (80% DV), potassium (20% DV) and a good source of iron (15% DV).
