Avocado Tuna SaladGotta love a good and easy salad that can be easily made for lunch and dinner and even enjoyed at your office desk, this Jalapeño Avocado Tuna Salad is definitely that type of salad. I bake a lot of cakes and treats, but my motto is definitely everything in moderation and I try to have a clean and balanced diet, so I can still fit into my pants.

Avocado Tuna SaladAs a full-time working mom I have my hands full so I am always looking for ways to make a quick and delicious lunch or dinner and with this Jalapeño Avocado Tuna Salad I hit the jackpot. I used Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore in Water as the main protein in this dish and mixed it with a ripe avocado, lemon juice and chopped jalapeño for a spicy kick. Just look at those tuna salad scoops, you can see huge chunks of tuna, and this is what I love about it: the firm texture, light color and fresh taste. I prefer using Solid White Albacore over Chunk Light Tuna, as Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna is quality you can see the moment you open the can. I actually end up eating it staring from the can many, many times!

Avocado Tuna SaladI served the Jalapeño Avocado Tuna Salad over a bed of kale mixed with buckwheat. I added some sliced radishes for a pop of color and some crunchiness. This salad is perfect and I like how quickly it comes together, also being super filling, nutritious and delicious. To save time during the week, I usually cook some buckwheat during the weekend and store it in an airtight container in the fridge. I add it to salads or use it instead of rice. For the perfect kale texture, I massage the kale with some lemon juice and olive oil, so its soft and tender.

Avocado Tuna SaladSeriously, this salad is packed with so many amazing textures and flavors, that I just want to eat it every day! Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore is the perfect ingredient to deliciously enhance almost any recipe, adding a variety of nutrients – including lean protein, healthy fat and important vitamins and minerals.
