Simple Recipe # 18: Arugula with Tuna And Avocado Salad

Since many people resolve to eat healthier in the New Year, I thought I’d share this quick and healthy salad.   I don’t know the calorie count but tuna is a great source for protein while avocadoes and olive oil are “good” fats.  Plus, It’s a good option for lunch at work if you pack the salad dressing ingredients on the side.   I was told by a few transplants that avocado is a California thing?  It lends the dish a nice, creamy texture so I would urge you to try it even if you’re not a fan.   



Canned Tuna packed in olive oil (1)

Avocado (1)

Cherry Tomatoes

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Balsamic Vinegar



1 ) Wash the arugula and rinse the cherry tomatoes.  Slice the tomatoes in halves.  Put in a large salad bowl. 

2 ) Add in 1 can of tuna. Use the best that you can find.

3 ) Slice in avocado.

4 ) Add in extra virgin olive oil, salt, and a dash of balsamic vinegar.  Toss well.

  1. That sounds delicous! We’re in the middle of summer here and this sounds perfect for those evenings when I just can’t be bothered to cook. Thank you!

  2. Lots of people like avocados, but they are much much more prevalent around here. I’m definitely making this — I had everything but the avocado. I hope i like it — I have been trying to find a good use for tuna besides sandwhiches and usual salads
