Avocado salmon sandwich is the best solution for a quick, light, yet nutritious lunch. It is a quick and easy recipe to prepare.

The salmon-avocado combination has become a trendy classic. Today I will share with you a toast version with the added flavor of red onion. Both salmon and avocado are known for their nutritional properties. They’re both are a source of “good fats” and protein, useful for cardiovascular health and not only. 

Either it’s a lively breakfast, a Sunday brunch, a last-minute dinner, or a sudden attack of hunger, the avocado salmon toast is the solution. All you have to do is dedicate to it in under 10 minutes and let yourself conquered by its unedited delicacy.

How to make avocado dip?

The avocado dip is always a good idea. I like to make this simple recipe because it’s done in only a couple of minutes and because it is a splendid combination of healthy and tasty. The dip can play different roles in one’s life:) I like to grab some nachos, prepare the creamy mash, and dip in the nachos when watching a weeknight movie with my husband. It is a great filling for different sandwiches, especially for the chickpea sandwich, which is hearty, healthy,  and finger-licking.

If I’ve succeeded to catch your attention, then check below the avocado dip recipe in a few simple steps. 

First, make sure you have the right utensils around you, that’s a sharp knife, a spoon, and a bowl. Second, prepare the ingredients, wash the avocado and the lime, peel the red onion and make sure you have the salt and the garlic powder in your close proximity.

Last, prepare the dip. Slice the avocado into 2 parts, and extract the pip. Now hold one half in your left hand (if you are right-handed) and slice the avocado with a sharp knife with your right hand. Use the spoon to scoop the avocado, to separate the skin from the fruit. Place it in the bowl and repeat the same procedure with the other half.

Finely chop the red onion and add it to the avocado. Squeeze half a lime into the bowl, sprinkle one tsp of salt and one tsp of garlic powder, and blend. I let the blender do this job for me, or, you can use a fork and work the ingredients to the right consistency.

That is all it takes to make a deliciously healthy avocado dip. Just like I promised a bit earlier, it will take no time until you have the dip ready for whatever your plans are.

What bread to use for the avocado salmon sandwich?

A great sandwich needs great bread. For the salmon sandwich to turn out delicious, I toast the bread. I simply adore the hot crispy bread covered with avocado dip and topped with smoked salmon.  What makes a bread – the perfect sandwich bread? If you think that the square-shaped loaf is the only proper bread for making sandwiches, it’s not. Advertising and marketing have made us all have a misconception of how a sandwich bread should look like. As a matter of fact, it is the consistency of the bread we should care about, not the shape.  It is best to use whole wheat, whole grain, or, ideally, the pumpernickel bread. All these types of bread have a high consistency of fiber and nutrients. These loaves of bread help digestion, which is very welcome.

Once you have chosen the right bread, slice it, and toast it. There is a common belief that toasted bread has fewer calories, but it’s not true. Toasting bread doesn’t have any effect on the nutritional value, it doesn’t lower the gluten or the carbs. However, the advantage of toasting bread is decreased glycemic index. In conclusion, it is best to consume toasted bread for two main reasons. First, it has a lower glycemic index. Second, it is just damn delicious.
