Grilled Salmon and Bok Choy with Orange-Avocado Salsa

Citrus and fresh herbs add clean, fresh flavor to foods, so you don't need to use much (if any) salt. Cilantro lends more than a little zing here: the vibrant herb contains healing phytonutrients and has antimicrobial properties.

    What an amazing recipe! I don't like raw onion, so I grill the red onion along with the bok choy on my electric grill and serve the vegetables over brown rice. I squeeze lemon over the onions and bok choy while they cook. The whole meal is incredible and very quick to prepare if the brown rice is made ahead of time.
