The recipe is simple, I mixed a can of tuna with a tablespoon of mayo, some chopped cilantro and a squeeze of lime. Then I roughly chopped up one avocado, sprinkled some salt over it and gave it a squeeze of lime. I served it by layering the tuna over the avocado and then topping everything off with fresh salsa.

This is recipe is definitely a keeper. It took me less than 10 minutes to make, and if I had the tuna already mixed up it would take less than 5 minutes. Perfect for when I’m rushing out the door in the morning. I loved the creaminess the avocado gave the tuna, with that little added zip from the lime juice. The salsa on top gave everything a fresh flavor that I thought brought it all together.
