Avocado With Tuna

Avocado With Tuna | giverecipe.com

I shared my first experience with avocado some time ago. It was a dip made from a combination of avocado and cheese. Do you remember that? We have eaten avocado several times  since then especially in thin slices on salads. As it’s already summer here, we love to have salads for lunch. To make our salad more nutritional, we add various healthy foods into our salads including protein sources like beans, chicken or tuna. We were enjoying our tuna salad the other day with a few avocado slices on the top when the idea of tuna filled avocado came to my mind.

Flavors of tuna and avocado match very well and roasted red bell pepper just balances them. I used parsley and green onions, but you can use any herb you like such as fresh dill or basil.
