Avocado Tuna Salad is served over toasted buckwheat and kale, with crunchy radishes. It is nutritious, fresh and hearty with a spicy kick.

I love making quick, easy and delicious salads like BLT Potato Salad and Garlic Kale Salad.

Avocado Tuna Salad is a a quick and delicious salad made easily at home. I used white albacore in water as the main protein in this dish. Then, I mixed it with a ripe avocado, lemon juice and chopped jalapeno for a spicier 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 served the Avocado Tuna Salad over a bed of kale mixed with buckwheat. In addition, 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.
