AIP Mediterranean salmon salad

AIP • Paleo • Gluten free • Grain free • Dairy free • Nut free • Nightshade free

I love a nightshade-free Mediterranean salad with salmon. It's nutrient dense and refreshing richness is filling and very quick to make. This salad is super quick to throw together, it is a regular meal that I enjoy 3 - 4 times a week. It's also great as a takeaway salad, I leave out the coconut yoghurt and add a drizzle of the AIP Greek Dressing.

When buying salmon make sure you check what it has been feed on (if farmed), and if using smoked salmon that it is AIP compliant.
