Stuffed Avocado Salad 

Serves 6 

This is a recipe to prepare right before serving. The lemon juice will prevent the avocado from browning too quickly, but ideally, try to serve soon after preparation. If using the smoked salmon, find some htat doesn’t have artificial additives added to enhance the colour or flavour, or that is ‘honey-glazed’ with added sweetners. 

3 large avocados
