4 servings


  • ½ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt

  • ½ cup diced celery

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 (5 ounce) cans salmon, drained, flaked, skin and bones removed

  • 2 avocados

  • Chopped chives for garnish


  1. Combine yogurt, celery, parsley, lime juice, mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl; mix well. Add salmon and mix well.

  2. Halve avocados lengthwise and remove pits. Scoop about 1 tablespoon flesh from each avocado half into a small bowl. Mash the scooped-out avocado flesh with a fork and stir into the salmon mixture.

  3. Fill each avocado half with about 1/4 cup of the salmon mixture, mounding it on top of the avocado halves. Garnish with chives, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
