We liked it and will probably make again. I felt like the flavors needed to blend for a longer period of time. Next time I'll make the salmon mixture and the dressing in advance and let meld overnight.

Delicious! I used thawed frozen salmon that I had cooked previously and froze, my DH loved this for lunch with fresh homemade rolls, thanks Nims!...Kitten:)

Enjoyed these for a delicious Saturday lunch with friends. I made them exactly to the recipe, except for leaving the avocados - which were Australian not Californian! - in their shells (simply because that's what I'm used to doing, and it's easier!) and breaking up the salmon (I used red salmon) before mixing it with the celery and green onion. The dressing was the perfect complement to the avocado and salmon. Thanks! Great recipe!
