What’s For Dinner? Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

A few months ago I did the Whole 30 and loved it! It was a challenge the first week for sure, but it really helped me change my eating lifestyle. This was one of my go to recipes and it is a perfect summer meal. You can grill the salmon on a grill pan or outside on your outdoor grill. 

Enjoy 🙂
