3 cans tuna water packed, drained 1 cup English cucumber quartered and sliced 1 avocado seeded, peeled and diced 2 tablespoons red onion thinly sliced 1/4 cup chopped cilantro 2 tablespoon lime juice 1/4 cup olive oil 1/2 teaspoon chili powder 1/4 teaspoon cumin salt and pepper to taste
Place the tuna, cucumber, avocado, red onion and cilantro in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, chili powder, cumin and salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the tuna mixture; gently toss to coat. Serve immediately.
I use water packed tuna versus oil packed tuna so that I can control the fat content of the recipe.
Choose firm but ripe avocados. You want to make sure your avocados are on the firm side so that they won't get mushy when you toss the salad together.
