Avocado tuna salad

Print this recipe
If you ever need to rev up your tuna salad a little bit, this is the way to do it. The recipe below piles delicious tuna salad on top of zesty avocado and cucumber slices for a lunch that looks as though it should be served at a gourmet restaurant. It's easy enough to do, a large circle cookie cutter or food rim will do the trick. And while this lunch may be healthy from top to bottom, it's so extremely filling you'll be wondering just how exactly that's possible.
Every layer is (almost) better than the last. At first you get that first bite of delicious tuna salad, crammed with good things like red onion, fresh dill, and chopped cucumber. Then you move into the smooth and creamy avocado, that has just a bit of zip, and underneath it all are refreshing cucumber slices that bring it all together and give it a pop of freshness. I could go on and on but it's so good, let's get to the recipe so you can try it for yourself!
