My Favourite Summer Salad with Avocado and Salmon

My Favourite Summer Salad

Life is a little hectic right now with the kids out of school. We have gone camping, visited with my sisters and their kids and my brother and his girlfriend and my parents. We are running around at the moment in summer camps so this salad has saved my life the last few weeks. It is quick and easy and I use whatever protein I have around. Today I had cold salmon from a cedar plank salmon we had last night. The way my kids devour salmon I was surprised I had any left. Ava helped me finish this while Aidan was in camp today.

This tasty salad is my favourite right now and I am constantly revising it and using different combinations of herbs and proteins. The one thing that remains the same is butter lettuce. I love the soft texture of the lettuce with the crunchy cucumbers and ripe tomatoes. I made this salad while camping this weekend for my mom and I except I used white balsamic vinegar in the dressing.
