I'm a big fan of avocado and tuna together, but I wanted a heartier dish. I used this recipe as a starting point and added: 1/2 jicama (cubed) and 1 medium tomato (seeded and chopped) plus a pinch of sugar to bring out the flavors, then served it on a bed of lettuce with a side of soba noodles in sesame sauce. Seriously good stuff. Thanks!
I am so fond of recipes that use avocado simply & allow its mellow flavour to shine. This recipe does that & then lets you decide where to take it. I made the recipe for a tasty salad lunch to share w/DH today & prob used a bit extra mayo since I did not measure it. My avocados were very lrg & ripe & I did not manage to keep the halves intact. I served the tuna-stuffed avocado segments w/sliced tomato, hard-boiled egg & oranges + cottage cheese. Then I seasoned all ingredients w/McCormick Lemon & Pepper Seasoning Salt. The flavour combo of avocado & tuna is excellent. Thx for sharing this simple & simply delicious recipe w/us & for getting me inspired to create a lunch out of the ordinary.
