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.

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.

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!
