Tuna, Tomato and Avocado Salad

Working from home, I sometimes don't eat the best lunches. It easier to just walk through the kitchen and grab a piece of fruit and maybe some crackers and cheese, and call it "lunch". Today I really wanted something tasty and satisfying, and healthy. There was a tomato and a perfectly ripe avocado in one of my wrought iron baskets on my kitchen counter, just calling to be used! This is what I came up with:

Tuna, Tomato and Avocado Salad

1 Hass Avocado
1 medium vine ripe tomato, diced
1 (5 ounce) can of Genova Yellowfin Tuna (in pure olive oil), drained
1 small shallot, chopped
2 teaspoons of chopped cilantro
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper

  1. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise, remove the pit and skin. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, lightly toss the tomato, tuna and shallot together.
  3. Place an avocado half on each of two plates. Top each avocado with half of the tuna mixture.
  4. Top each avocado with 1 teaspoon of chopped cilantro.
  5. Sprinkle each avocado with sea salt and freshly ground pepper (to taste)
Serves 2

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my lunch today! I served it with a few garlic bagel chips on the side . . . delicious!

Buon Appetito!
