Basic Avocado Tuna Salad
Here's another quick fix! Usually prepared using the 7-8 ounce canned tuna, I encourage everyone to try baking their own tuna and preparing this recipe fresh. It's amazing, and super fast and easy. Trader Joe's sells a respectable frozen, vacuum-packed Ahi tuna which is great in this recipe. Bake with a little lime juice at 350 until white and flaky. Don't overcook.
You can fork it into flakes, or use your Cuisinart for a lightning speed blend. Don't overdo the Cuisinart action or you'll have tuna pate.
2 regular sized cans of tuna, which are sold in 7-8 ounce units, or bake your own from scratch as recommended above
1 ripe avocado
dash of lime juice for both baking the tuna (unless you are using canned) and for the salad
3 Tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
3 Tablespoons finely chopped green onions
2 cups spinach/mizuna greens
salt and pepper to taste
Mash avocado with lime juice. Gently mix in flaked tuna and blend in parsley and onions. Serve over spinach or mixed greens.
