Other sandwiches I love that don’t require heating up are Egg Scallion and Tomato SandwichGrilled Chicken Sandwich with Avocado and Tomato, and my favorite… Roast Beef, Arugula and Shaved Parmesan.

To make the tuna salad quickly, I throw all the vegetables in my chopper and pulse a few times. If I am eating one sandwich, I keep the rest refrigerated for the next day. Easy peasy!

I grew up with avocados in my home way before they became popular here in the States, and squeeze them into my diet every chance I can. Avocados are a regular part of a South American diet, and my mom always served them along side a hearty bowl of hot soup or rice and beans. Avocados are also good for you, loaded with heart-healthy fats and antioxidants. They are a great addition to this tuna sandwich!

  1. Delicious!! I love the idea of bulking up my tuna with extra veggies (and less mayo). This is a great quick and easy lunch to feel good about eating.
