Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Andrea's Wild Salmon Salad on Brown Rice Snaps is a quick and filling treat to satisfy those hunger pains. The star in this dish is of course the salmon, which packs those coveted Omega-3 fatty acids. These fats reduce the risk factors of heart disease including high cholesterol and high blood pressure!

Forget the go-to mayonnaise in this recipe. The use of olive oil, honey, Dijon mustard and apple cider vinegar combine to hold the ingredients together while raising HDL or "good" cholesterol levels.

The brown rice snaps are the primary carbohydrate ingredient. Unlike its white counterpart, brown rice still contains the hull and bran which are rich in protein, thiamine, calcium, magnesium, potassium and fiber! These snaps are also great for those who have or at risk for diabetes because it is a low GI food which helps to reduce sugar spikes.
