Now that the holidays are over I’ve been craving something light and fresh. A nice tuna salad avocado boat is exactly what I need to satisfy that craving. It’s light, yet filling at the same time, and makes a great lunch, snack or even a light dinner!
For this recipe I went with a Tuna that was in oil. Normally I’m a solid white albacore guy, but this had a velvety lush texture that really makes this tuna salad avocado boat feel like something special.
I made this similar to my Tuna Lettuce Wrap, but added a little kick with some crushed red pepper. It gives it a little kick – Full of flavor and spicy. That’s pretty much how I like my food!
I don’t know how popular tuna salad is, but when made right, it’s truly one of my favorites. Not sure if it’s because I ate a lot of it as a child, but normally I see people curl their lip in disgust. When made correctly, like this – you’ll love it!
