Avocado Tuna Salad with Chili Lime Dressing

The menu headings on this blog probably give it away - I eat a lot of salads. Especially when it’s hot. Or when I feel bloated. Or when I’m particularly lazy. It’s a kind of ‘cooking without cooking’ and as someone with quite a bit on my plate most days (in the figurative sense ;)), I can appreciate that. Ideas that leave me eating well but with time to spare are always quite welcome in this kitchen.

Avocado Tuna Salad with Chili Lime Dressing

Ingredients (serves 2):
1 can tuna in water, drained
1/3 cucumber, cut into cubes
1 avocado, seeded, peeled and diced
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 large scallion, copped
1 handful cilantro and parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon chili powder (I used cayenne pepper)
a dash of cumin
salt and pepper to taste

1. Place the avocado, cucumber, red onion, scallion, tuna, cilantro and parsley in a bowl. 

2. For the dressing, mix the olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. 

3. Pour the dressing over the ingredients in the bowl and toss lightly. Serve with bread.
