I just love avocados! They are packed with healthy fats, protein, anti-inflammatory nutrients, carotenoids, and are heart healthy…..plus they just plain taste great! I add a half an avocado every morning to my green smoothie. I put slices on my salads and sandwiches. I mash them up to make fresh guacamole. The list goes on and on. So for lunch today I decided to have stuffed avocados….Mmmmm so good!
large romaine lettuce leaf
finely chopped tomato
finely chopped cucumber
finely chopped red onion
a couple of cherry tomatoes
scoop of Kris Carr’s Save the Tuna Salad
Simply place a large lettuce leaf on a plate (or use a salad mix or spinach…whatever you like or have in the house). Cut the avocado in half, peel it and scoop out the pit. Place both halves on the lettuce.
In a small bowl mix the chopped onion, tomato, and cucumber with a squirt of lime juice. Scoop into the avocado.
I filled the other half with some Save the Tuna that I had in the fridge (see past recipe).
Sprinkle some pine nuts (or other nuts you like or have) on top, drizzle a little balsamic vinegar on top and decorate with a few cherry tomato halves.
Satisfying, filling, and unbelievably fresh and delicious.
