I’ve really been enjoying these sunny days when I tend to eat lighter dishes featuring raw ingredients. Salmon is filled with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and is a good source of omega-3 fatty acid. Pumpernickel bread is loaded with protein and fiber, plus it’s gluten free, making this a pretty healthy meal. This recipe is super simple and doesn’t take any cooking, just prep!
