Tuna Avocado Salad

One of the hardest things about eating healthy is meal-planning.  It’s not always easy to grab something quick after a busy day that fits into the categories of nourishing, nutritious and delicious.  It’s also not easy to vary the ingredients you enjoy enough to make multiple meals.  It seems to us that one of the tricks to overcoming these obstacles is to have on hand certain staples that are versatile and quick, easy to add to anything.  Allow us to introduce you to the tuna-avocado combination!

Tuna is a simple healthy option that already fits into multiple recipes.  Mixing in avocado allows tuna to take on a more creamy texture, and the combination is absolutely delicious.  This week’s recipe features our tuna-avocado combo in salad form, but keeping a container of it in your fridge will allow you to add it to wraps, sandwiches, or as a side to dinner.

Ingredients:
2 cans of Wild Planet albacore tuna ( I use one with olive oil and one with water)
1 avocado
3 chopped scallions
Szechuan seasoning (Penzey’s)
chopped chives

Directions:
Mix together tuna and avocado, mashing avocado into tuna.  Add chopped scallions and chives.  Season with Szechuan seasoning and pepper.  Place onto a bed of lettuce and surround with vegetables of choice.

Enjoy!
