Just look at that quality. Weep worthy or what.

I can’t wait to improve my photography and make (and eat) lots more food! I think it’s the perfect time to get a new camera as my blog is turning one! Literally today! One year ago, I wrote my first post! I can’t believe how quickly time has flown and thank you all so much. This has honestly been one of the best decisions I’ve made and it really has changed my life for the better! I urge anyone that wants to start a blog to do so πŸ™‚

Whether you’re a new reader just stopping by or you’ve followed my blog for a while – THANK YOU! Honestly, it means so much to me that people have been enjoying it by leaving comments and e-mails!
I can’t wait to see what the future holds but I will carry on blogging fo’ sho’!

Salmon, Asparagus and Avocado Salad dairy free, gluten free

This salad is perfect for a light lunch or you could serve it atop brown rice or another grain. You could also drizzle it with toasted sesame oil and sprinkle sesame seeds on top for more of an Asian vibe.Feel free to also poach salmon or trout, which is delicious, but has a less strong flavour.

Bunch of asparagus, cut diagonally
1/2 avocado, cubed
A few slices of smoked salmon (I used applewood and oak smoked)
Extra virgin olive oil
Apple cider vinegar
Lemon
Salt and pepper

Place the asparagus and boil in salted water until tender.

Once done, put straight into ice cold water to cool down and keep the colour vibrant.

Mix together the olive oil, vinegar, squeeze of lemon and salt and pepper to taste.
Once the dressing is done, stir the asparagus in it.

Just before serving, add the avocado and salmon on top.
Drizzle with a touch more olive oil and freshly ground pepper.

  1. Great recipe! Happy Blog Birthday πŸ™‚ What kind of camera did you get? I need to upgrade and those pictures look AWESOME (though camera only gets you partway, the rest is the photographer!)

  2. When I got my current camera, I saw my photography improve by leaps and bounds. Don’t read up too much about how to use it at the start, just leap in and take lots of photos. Get a feel for the kinds of photos you want to take and then do some tutorials and reading. The information will sink in much better than if you went in fresh.
