Vibrant Tuna Salad

By: Lama
This tuna salad is not only packed with protein but also offers a combination of textures and flavors that will make each bite a delight. It's a refreshing and satisfying dish, perfect for a light lunch or dinner.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 2 people

Ingredients 

  • 2 can Tuna
  • 1 Ripe Avocado, diced
  • 1 tablespoon Chia seeds
  • ¼ onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon juice
  • Lettuce leaves
  • 1 cup Cherry tomatoes, halves
  • 1 small Cucumber, sliced
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Instructions 

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the drained tuna, diced avocado, chia seeds, and sliced red onion.
  • Squeeze the lemon juice over the mixture and gently toss to combine. The lemon juice will help keep the avocado from browning and add a refreshing tang to the salad.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste, adjusting the seasoning according to your preference.
  • Arrange the lettuce leaves on a serving plate or individual plates.

  • Garnish with additional lemon slices if desired.
  • Serve the tuna salad immediately and enjoy this nutritious and flavourful meal.

Notes

  1. Chill before serving: For the best taste and texture, refrigerate the tuna salad for at least 30 minutes before serving. This allows the flavours to meld together.
  2. Customize with additional vegetables: Feel free to customize your tuna salad by adding more vegetables according to your preferences. Consider options like diced bell peppers, celery, or shredded carrots for added crunch and flavour.
  3. Soak red onion in cold water: If you find raw red onion too strong or overpowering, soak the sliced onion in cold water for about 10 minutes. This helps mellow the flavour and reduces its pungency.
  4. Choose ripe avocados: Select ripe avocados that are slightly soft to the touch but not mushy. They should yield gently when pressed.
  5. Use high-quality tuna: Opt for good-quality tuna for the best flavour and texture. Canned solid white albacore tuna or tuna packed in olive oil are excellent choices.
