I may be following a strict autoimmune protocol diet to reverse my autoimmune disease and heal my body, but I do not feel restricted in my food choices. There is nothing I like more than a beautiful plate with colorful, vibrant, and nutrient-dense food on it. If you look around past the aisles of processed food, you will discover an abundance of flavorful and nutritious ingredients available to you. Meat, fish, vegetables, and fruits; this is nature’s bounty. Take advantage of this wealth to create meals that will promote health and wellness for you and your family.
Speaking of family, I like to serve several small appetizers instead of one big main dish for holiday meals and celebrations. It has become somewhat a tradition in our house and everyone has come to expect this parade of hors d’oeuvres and canapés.
This recipe for smoked salmon and avocado boats is one of my favorite. Smoked salmon can be quite expensive, especially if you favor wild caught varieties as I do, but you will be serving only a small amount per person.
This particular recipe is very easy to put together, requires no cooking or baking, and will definitely impress your guests with its vivid colors and delicate flavors.
