A Food Network Judge’s Lovely Lobster Salad Recipe

Lobster Salad Healthy Recipe

If you’ve never cooked lobster before then it can seem intimidating, but the lobster itself is actually a very easy thing to cook. This lovely lobster salad with avocado and cucumber is also healthy, low-carb, and Paleo. And lobster adds a gourmet or special occasion vibe to any meal.

This recipe was developed and given to us by Chef Kristin Sollene, a rising star in the culinary world. She’s the Executive Chef of Bocca di Bacco, a boutique chain of modern Italian restaurants with five locations in New York City. She’s been a judge on the Food Network, Zagat named her one of their ’30 Best Under 30′ in 2013, and her specialty is lighter, fresh Italian cooking.
