Stuff THAT in Your Avocado!
January 17, 2017
A simple light meal is appreciated any time of year. This is easy, healthy, quick to make and can be served for lunch or dinner.
People have definite tuna preferences. I have a good friend who only likes one type of tuna that she buys at Trader Joe’s (Cheri). Another friend swears tuna packed in olive oil is the best. I’m not a tuna snob but I do have tuna brands and types I like better than others. Right now I’m enjoying Costco’s Kirkland brand tuna packed in water. The author of the original recipe, Rachel Farnsworth, recommends solid albacore tuna packed in olive oil. BTW – I used the Kirkland brand and thought it tasted fine but I also like a drier tuna so use whatever you like best.
If you don’t want to stuff your tuna ingredients into the avocado, it is nice on a bed of lettuce too. I also drizzle balsamic vinegar and olive oil and top with crumbled turkey bacon for a decadent finish (while still being healthy).
