Special Notes

Some substitutions that work with this recipe include tuna for the salmon and cucumber for the zucchini.  In addition, if you are sensitive to eggs, you can try using full fat coconut milk in place of the avocado oil mayo.

If you need to avoid all dairy than you can try this cashew cheese alternative.  It tastes really good and works well with this recipe.


Dr Jockers Comments

This salmon salad zucchini cups are a fun recipe that is full of nutrient dense, fat burning ingredients.  It is easy to make, tastes great and is a unique side dish for a party.  If you are looking for something new and healthy than try this out!

Wild caught salmon is one of the cleanest and highest sources of the long-chain omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.  These fatty acids reduce inflammation in the body and support healthy brain function, cardiovascular health and hormonal balance.  In addition, salmon is a great source of the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin that neutralizes free radicals and oxidative stress in the body.

I am a huge fan of getting high quality, wild caught salmon into the diet and when you combine it with veggies and other nutrient dense ingredients you have a fantastic meal.   Try it out and let us know you how you like it in the comments section below.
