Kale, rice and toasted California Walnuts are the base for this healthy bowl. Toss with a chipotle lime vinaigrette and top with salmon, avocado, beans, peppers and coriander.

Eating a handful of California Walnuts a day (30g) can help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels. They can also help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Award-winning dietitian Sian Porter and heart health charity HEART UK have both given this recipe the ‘heart healthy’ seal of approval!
