  • 6 ounce can of salmon, preferrably Wild Alaskan, no salt added
  • 15 ounce can Great Northern Beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 medium avocado chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley, if preferred
  • 1 tablespoons lemon juice (add more to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chopped red onion


  • Drain salmon and transfer to a bowl. Add beans and gently combine. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix to combine. Serve chilled. Best if made at least a couple of hours before serving.
  • Can also add to sandwich/wrap: be sure to mash the mixture so it's more spreadable


I sautéed the onion for 1-2 minutes to reduce the onion-y flavor for the baby. You can use raw if you desire or leave out all together.
