Grilled Salmon with Creamy Avocado Sauce

This was dinner last night:
So good, so summery, so healthy, so easy. This recipe is really a nutritional superstar, loaded with a number of items that you always see on those 'super foods' lists: salmon, avocado, lemon, greek yogurt, sour cream. You may not have seen sour cream on any of the published 'super foods' lists, but I assure you it's on mine. 

I love hot, grilled salmon with a contrasting cold, creamy, dill-y, yogurt sauce. Avocado is an awesome addition.

Drizzle lemon juice and a little olive oil over the salmon fillets, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat the grill to medium-high, and grill the salmon about 4 minutes on each side (a little longer for more well-done salmon).

In the bowl of a food processor, add the avocado, sour cream, yogurt, mayo and lemon juice. Mix until creamy. Stir in the dill and optional water, then spoon over the salmon. This will for sure become a staple weeknight dinner for us, and I think you could add other herbs with the dill for fun - basil, chives, parsley, yum!
