Ingredients:

1 - 10" tortilla

1 tsp + 1/2 tsp freshly pressed garlic

1 TBSP olive oil

1 tsp dill weed (I like Pampered Chef Dill Mix) - or 1 TBSP fresh dill weed

1/2 tsp freshly pressed garlic

1 cup grated mozzarella and/or cheddar cheese, divided in 1/2 cup amounts

100 grams (4 oz) cooked or smoked salmon, boneless

1 avocado

Lemon Pepper Rub or Rosemary Herb Seasoning Mix

Directions:

  1. Press the garlic cloves in two separate amounts. Set the 1/2 tsp amount aside.

  2. On a 12-inch baking stone, brush the tortilla with the olive oil, then with the 1 tsp freshly pressed garlic clove.

  3. In a small bowl, mix the dill weed and 1/2 tsp freshly pressed garlic together with the cream cheese. Spread this on the tortilla.

  4. Thinly slice the red onion and layer on top of the cream cheese mixture.

  5. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the grated cheese.

  6. Break apart the salmon with your fingers and place evenly over the onion slices.

  7. Slice the avocado in strips and place on top.

  8. Sprinkle with the Lemon Pepper Rub or Rosemary Herb Seasoning Mix
