Tuna salad with avocado-lemon dressing

Salads always sound healthy and they tend to appear on peoples diet if they want to lose weight. However, there are a few buts to add:

  • You can destroy a healthy salad with a mayonnaise loaded dressing.
  • If your salad only contains vegetables, chances are high that you get hungry a couple of hours after lunch.
  • Only cause the potato-cheese salad is called salad, doesn't mean it's healthy and helping on your diet.

My easy to prepare tuna salad includes everything you need for a filling but healthy lunch. The avocado-lemon dressing is creamy as your ranch dressing but replacing the saturated fatty acids with essential ones. To give you a longlasting fullness, the tuna chuncks provide the necessary proteins.


  • 135g canned, drained tuna chuncks in water
  • 100g lettuce mixed
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 18p cherry tomatoes
  • 1 capsicum
  • 1 slice brown toast
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 Tbsp aceto balsamico
  • 1 lemon, juice
  • 1 tsp ground paprika
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. For the dressing, mix avocado, aceto, onion, lemon juice, paprika, salt and pepper with a blender. If it is too thick, add some water
  2. Mix remaining ingredients, except toast, and pour dressing on top
  3. Eat toast as side
