CANCEL YOUR LUNCH PLANS! Make this instead. Avocados are in ABUNDANCE and full of anti- inflammatory and antioxidant properties, plus amazing monounsaturated fats to help protect your body from the effects of stress and support cardiovascular health. They’re also a delicious source of both soluble and insoluble fibre for a healthy gut. And in case you needed a reminder – they count toward your daily intake of fruit and veg. 

I’m in a sandwich era. This one is scoring big points toward #1 favourite. Try it and let me know what you think too! FULL RECIPE BELOW. 


Serves 3-4

2 medium baguettes, halved or 3-4 small baguettes 

1 large Hass Avocado, diced into 1cm pieces 

1 cup watercress leaves

1 tbsp lemon juice 


Smoked salmon mix: 

300g hot smoked salmon, skin removed 

1 tbsp baby capers 

1 tbsp finely chopped dill leaves 

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil 

½ tsp seeded mustard 

1 tsp honey 

2 tbsp lemon juice 


Make the avocado mix by combining avocado, watercress and lemon juice in a bowl and gently toss. In a separate bowl, flake the hot smoked salmon into pieces then mix in baby capers and dill leaves. Whisk extra virgin olive oil, mustard, honey and lemon juice in a cup, then pour over the salmon and toss to coat. Slice baguettes down the middle, but keep the bread intact. Add the avocado watercress mix to the baguette follows by the salmon mix and tuck in.
