We had a snow day last week.  Again.  While in most winters, snow days are scarce and coveted—even worth shoveling the driveway for, this year they are starting to feel old.

So, clearly, it was time for a meal that is easy, warm and cozy. An Avocado Salmon Melt!

Avocado Salmon Melt

In a recent trip to New York City (stay tuned for the write-up), I had a tuna melt for lunch and that really got the wheels turning.  I like tuna—give me sushi or a nice rare tuna steak anytime, but when it comes to sandwiches, salmon is my go-to fish. 

But both deliver a healthy dose of healthy Omega-3, so kudos either way.

Layer Avocado Salmon Melt ingredients, then broil

After my daughter and I shoveled for hours (how does my husband manage to be out of town every major storm…),  I knew I needed something super easy.  As in I didn’t even want to chop celery or onion or squeeze a lemon.  So I tossed in some flavorful ingredients that simply involved unscrewing a jar. 

How lazy is that? 

Slice avocados thinly

At least the mayonnaise, wheat bread and pickle relish were homemade—from an easier day! Then, since I had avocados on hand, I sliced them thinly, topping with my salmon salad and cheddar slices. ‘Cause nothing is too indulgent on a blustery day. 

In spring I’ll find a new excuse!

    This is so colourful. And how wonderful to have had a trip to NYC. I haven’t been there for a couple of years and I’ve only ever been there in the height of summer. I’d love to experience New York’s other seasons xx

      I am working on my writeup now, so take a look later this week! It was so much fun, you have to give it a try some time!

  2. In Good Flavor

    What a coincidence that my son made something similar to this for himself last night from a salmon fillet I had cooked up for him earlier in the day. He used mozzarella since it was the only cheese he could find that wasn’t American. This looks so good, I’m thinking I need to make myself one right now!! I hope winter takes a little break for you soon!
