Smoked Salmon and Avocado Wheat Berry Salad


This is a simple, tasty and highly nutritious salad. I’ve been trying to fit in 1-2 portions of avocados into our diet per week, along with two portions of fish, which are high in omega fatty acids. This salad fits the bill.

The chewy nibbles of wheat berries go perfectly well with the creamy avocado, smoked salmon, crunchy green pepper and ripe tomatoes. It’s perfect for summer barbecues or picnics.
