Loved this! I cut down the cumin by about half and used onion instead of water chestnuts (which I didn't have). CCQ Culinary Quest 2014
Very tasty. I didn't have water chestnuts so used some sliced English cucumber for crunch. Made for CQ 14.
Intriguing fusion recipe, I loved it! However, the lime-cumin taste was quite pronounced, so I would also serve a "regular" tuna fish salad as an alternate for guests. I liked the omission of mayonnaise. My salad might have held a molded shape better if I had let it chill in the refrigerator (but I was hungry and curious), or if I had cut the avocado in smaller cubes (I tried to cut the avocado quickly to prevent browning.) Thankfully, I remembered to look for a black-skinned avocado with just a little give, so my avocado was at its peak, and came out of the shell easily with an over-sized tablespoon.
