  4. ha! OMG avocado sardine salad is a waaay better title

  5. After reading this post I went out and bought some sardines and finally made a similar salad tonight - except I used Swiss Chard instead of lettuce. It was delicious! Thanks for sharing this Lori, I am determined to love sardines since I don't eat red meat and need the protein. (Also: sardines are cheap!)

  6. good for you! I'm determined as well. though I am very much looking forward to alaskan salmon season
