Tanya's Avocado and Mango Salad and Miso Baked Salmon Recipes

I made this the other day for Becca Tilley and I and wanted to share the recipes below. They're from The Complete Anti-Inflammatory Diet for Beginners cookbook and are super easy and satisfying. Avos are loaded with healthy fats, potassium and vitamins plus protein. Mangos are equally amazing for you, loaded with antioxidants and vitamins. The dressing is also anti-inflammatory and, of course, salmon is a good source of protein. It's also one of the best sources of vitamin B12 and bursting in potassium and other nutrients like iron and vitamin D.
