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.
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.
