Ingredients You’ll Need

Smoked Salmon (100g) – This gives a salty, smoky flavor that your guests will drool over.

Onion (1) – This adds savory notes. If you like it sweet, you can use red onion instead. And if you don’t like onions, you can simply leave them out, or use milder onions like green onions.

Lemon (1/2) This prevents the avocado from becoming discolored.

Avocado (1/2) The creaminess of the avocado helps balance out the saltiness of the salmon.
