Author Notes: I think I may have found my new favorite sandwich to make....over...and over again. I made an Avocado and Tuna Salad a while back with lettuce cups and absolutely fell in love with it. This recipe is also really easy to "vegan-ize" if you don't eat Tuna, by substituting the Tuna with 1 cup of roughly mashed Chickpeas and Vegan Mayo.Supper With Michelle - Michelle Braxton


Serves 4 - 5

Salad Ingredients:

  • 10 ounces Solid White Albacore Tuna (in water - drained)
  • 2 tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 medium size - Cucumber (diced)
  • 2 tablespoons Red Onion (or 1 small shallot - diced)
  • 2 tablespoons Kosher Dill Pickle Relish (not sweet)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 1/2 the juice from one small Lime
  • Sea Salt to taste

Sandwich Ingredients:

  • 4 - 8 Slices of Toasted Bread (your choice)
  • 1 - 2 handfuls Lettuce ( I used Organic Baby Field Greens)
  • 1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
  1. **Please Note** - Only add the avocado to the portion that you are going to serve immediately. Brown avocado is not real appetizing. *smile* But the rest of the salad will keep well for a day or two at most in a tightly sealed container in the fridge. And I topped the sandwich with the cherry tomatoes at the very end, more of a garnish. For an even lighter version, substitute the bread for lettuce cups. I really enjoy serving it that way as well.
  2. In a large bowl, lightly stir all ingredients in well together. Plate your toasted bread slices and then layer your sandwich with the lettuce first, then a scoop of tuna salad, and lastly top with your cherry tomatoes.
  3. Serve and enjoy!
