I saw this recipe done on TV, but I cannot remember when and by whom. Even the exact recipe cannot be recalled exactly. So, based on whatever I can remember, and some skills I acquired while helping my mom in the kitchen, I whipped up my version on the Tuna Avocado Salad.

Tuna – Avocado Salad

  • 2 medium sized Avocado (remove skin and pit. chopped roughly into 1 cm squares)
  • 1 can (approx. 186 gm) Tuna in Olive Oil
  • 1 Japanese cucumber (chopped into 1 cm squares approximately)
  • 1 large tomato (remove the seeds and chopped into 1 cm squares)
  • 1/2 cup chopped corriander leaves
  • 1/2 cup chopped spring onion
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • freshly ground black pepper.

Just mix everything in a bowl, while breaking the tuna chunks into smaller pieces. Do not throw away the olive oil in the canned tuna. Mix the olive oil with the juice of 1 lemon, it's a very flavourful dressing. A basic salad dressing is 1 part acid (the lemon juice) to 3 parts oil. So, if need to, adjust the lemon juice to taste. Lastly season with black pepper to taste.

Chill the salad in the refrigerator before serving.

This recipe nicely serves 4 to 5 people.

My kids just love this. I like this because the only processed protein in this recipe is the canned tuna. The rest of the ingredients are fresh produce with the nutrients intact. It's a good way to add vegetables to the childrens' diet.
