Easy avocado boats with tuna salad
Avocado is one of those versatile and delicious vegetables. While you wouldn’t necessarily suspect it but it is packed with fibre and healthy fats. So adding an avocado to your daily smoothie or eating it with an egg, as we like to do, is a good idea.
Avocado with tuna salad
But if you’re looking for a fun and new way to present your avocado than give these avocado boats with tuna salad a go. They’re a fun way to present your tuna salad and you can scoop up some of the flesh while you’re at it. I chose to have the avocado flesh still in the halves but for easier eating you can scoop out the avocado, cut it into pieces and mix with the tuna salad.
In the meantime I’ve also started with a new study: “Food and the menopauze”. Basically everything you need to know about food and the impact on menopauze. What to eat and what to avoid and what other things to keep in mind once you enter menopauze. I’m way past the ‘entering’ point. If I learn anything new or interesting I might share it here too. For now I leave you with this delicious recipe. Enjoy!
- 2-3 ripe avocado’s
- 2 cans tuna I use the ones in olive oil
- handful of cherry tomatoes
- 2 tbsp of capers chopped a bit
- 3 tbsp of homemade mayo
- fresh chives
- 3 cooked eggs chopped
- 2 spring onions in small rings
- salt and pepper
Start by preparing your tuna salad. Drain the cans of tuna and break any chunks apart in a bowl.
Cut the tomatoes in quarters or halves and add to the tuna. Cut the chives smaller and add the capers and spring onions a well.
Add the eggs
Add the mayonnaise and mix it all together. Season with salt and pepper to taste
Open the avocado’s at the last moment just before you are serving it.
Cut them open and remove the stone. Remove a bit of the flesh so there will be more space for the tuna salad. Any avocado you remove chop and add to the salad.
Pile the tuna salad into the boats and serve immediately
