Salmon salad wrap

Whole grains and vegetables combine with healthy fats from salmon and olive oil to create a delicious wrap. For many of us, reducing sodium is an important but challenging component of a heart-healthy diet. You can limit sodium in your diet by decreasing reliance on processed foods and always looking for canned items without added salt. Seasoning with herbs, spices, and lemon juice also helps reduce the reliance on salt for flavor.
