As it’s National Heart Month we’re adding a recipe that is heart protective, easy to prepare, and of course delicious!

This recipe is packed full of polyunsaturated fats, monounsaturated fats, and anti-inflammatory properties. The polyunsaturated fats from the salmon and olive oil are super-foods for the cardiovascular system as they help to reduce blood pressure, lower resting heart rate, and improve vascular flow.
