Whole30 Salmon Avocado Protein Salad

Whole30 Salmon Avocado Salad Protein Salads are a favorite No Cook Meal, whether or not I’m doing a Whole30!

They’re my go-to for a quick, satisfying lunch or dinner. Be creative and use mix-ins you have in your pantry and fridge to suit your taste, no boring lunches allowed! Add crunch with diced veggies or nuts…or boost the flavor with a spicy mayo or ranch to bind, endless combinations! 

Keep these basics stocked for ready to go Protein Salads anytime: veggies, fruit, nuts, cans/packets of tuna/salmon/chicken, spices, and of course…Whole30 MAYO (homemade or store bought). Protein salads are nutrient dense and filling…try one today! (Another favorite to try: Curry or Waldorf Chicken Salad)
