Avocado with Tuna gives you everything your body needs in a small pack. A super nutritious and tasty salad served in avocado bowls is a big hit in my house.
Whenever I have little time to prepare lunch or even dinner, Avocado with Tuna salad is one those recipes I think of. It is super easy, no cooking or baking is required and ready in minutes. Plus, it is so tasty, healthy and full of nutrition. Nothing could be better than this!
If you love avocado and tuna, you have to try them together! Avocado with tuna will become your favorite avocado recipe. This is so good that I know you won’t want to share it with anyone and will eat both avocado bowls yourself.
I shared my first experience with avocado some time ago. It was a dip made with a combination of avocado and cheese. Do you remember that? We have eaten avocado several times since then especially in thin slices on salads. I think we start to love this non-Turkish food.
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 stuffing avocado with tuna salad came to my mind.
Flavors of tuna and avocado match wonderfully 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. And make sure you add enough lemon juice in this avocado with tuna salad.
