Yummy Fixins: Open faced salmon sandwiches (recipe)

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.
