Farmer Cheese Salmon Tostadas

This meal is easy to make, but boasts a fusion of flavors, giving it unexpected complexity. It starts with Lifeway Farmer Cheese. We spread our probiotic cheese atop a crisp tostada and then add fresh salmon, marinated in kefir and cubed. This is paired with juicy pineapples, spicy jalapeños, herbaceous cilantro, and zesty lime. Our mild cheese allows for the kick of heat from the peppers on the front end, but follows it with a gentle sweetness that balances out the spice perfectly.

In addition, kefir made from whole milk helps absorb key nutrients such as Vitamins A, D, E, and K. Vitamin K is important because it helps your bones absorb calcium.
