Guacamole - Avocado salad with onions

Preparation time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 obligatory baked avocados (I had only one and a maximum of two servings resulted)
  • 1 red
  • 1 small onion
  • a few sprigs of parsley
  • 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • chilli powder
  • salt

METHOD OF PREPARATION
Before opening the avocado, prepare the vegetables.
1.Cut into small diced tomatoes and onions, chop and parsley.

2. Squeeze the lemon in a cup / bowl.
3. Then undo avocado. I have now learned to unwrap avocados after the tutorial (and Brandusa has one). I also show you to those who have just become friends with avocados.
-With a sharp knife, cut the fruit long, in the middle, to the core.
-Rotate the parts 90 degrees. If the fruit is well ripened, this is the simplest thing.
-Put the knife in the core and rotate. If it is baked, it comes out immediately, otherwise it adheres.

4. Peel the avocado core with a spoon. The ice cream portioning tool is also wonderful because the tongs cut well and help the core to come out of the spoon immediately, but this is not really well baked.

5. Put it in a bowl and quickly add the lemon juice over it so that it does not oxidize.

6. Pass with the electric vertical blender, but in the glass with high walls from the blender. If you don't have a blender, pass the avocado core with a fork, I could best do it with the potato sieve because at the time of recording the recipe I didn't have a blender arm in the mixer.

7. Put the chopped vegetables over the avocado paste, don't pass anything, just mix together the salt and the chilli powder.
8. If necessary, add a little more lemon juice.
DECORATION
I placed it in the serving bowl with the ice cream tongs. I decorated it with chilli powder, a little chopped parsley, a sprig of parsley and diced tomatoes.

How to Make Tuna and Avocado Salad & # 8211 Best Tips & Tricks

1. What we put in the tuna salad

I wanted it to be a healthy, fresh and simple food, so I made this tuna salad with avocado, chopped vegetables, a little lemon juice and olive oil. But there are many other ingredients that would go well in this avocado and tuna salad and here are some of my favorites:

I must mention here that if you add the above ingredients, there will no longer be a Keto, Paleo, Whole30, or gluten-free recipe.

Now let's move on and see how you can adapt this tuna and avocado salad recipe to your tastes.

2. How to adapt the salad to your tastes

If you do not follow a specific diet, you can add any of the ingredients mentioned above. In addition, you can use any of your favorite vegetables and the dressing you like best. I recommend you try the dressing I used in this pasta salad. I'm sure you'll like it.

And here are some vegetables that would go well in this avocado and tuna salad (other than the ones I used):

  • Varza Kale
  • Cut carrots
  • Cabbage
  • arugula
  • Cauliflower
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Radish
  • Broccoli
  • Beet

In addition to these vegetables, you can also add the fruits you like:

  • Strawberries
  • Grapes
  • Mango
  • Dried apricots
  • Pomegranate
  • apples
  • tangerines

You can also add shrimp or crispy bacon to make it even more nutritious.

3. How to make meal-planning with avocado and tuna salad

Aside from being Keto, Paleo and Whole30, this avocado and tuna salad is also perfect for meal-planning. And the best solution to keep salad for meal planning is in an airtight jar.

Start by adding the liquids (lemon juice and oil), avocado and then the rest of the ingredients. Make sure the lettuce leaves are the last ones you put in the jar.

In this way, the avocado will stay fresh and green because it is covered in lemon juice, and the salad leaves remain crispy and fresh because it does not come into contact with liquids.

And when you want to serve the salad, shake the jar and serve it directly from it, or you can pour it into a bowl.

It should be mentioned that the salad lasts in the refrigerator for a maximum of 3 days, although I am sure you will eat it much earlier.

I know many of you are wondering if I can freeze tuna and avocado salad, so I'll answer that question right away.

4. Can tuna and avocado salad be frozen?

You can freeze avocado salad and tuna as long as it does not contain mayonnaise, dressing or fresh vegetables. The mayonnaise can be cut and the vegetables will soften.

Therefore, you can freeze it only if it is very simple and contains ingredients such as tuna, corn, beans, pasta and cabbage. But otherwise, it's not a good idea.

And even if this avocado and tuna salad does not contain mayonnaise, I still do not recommend freezing it because it is not needed. As I said, it only takes 15 minutes to make it and you can keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Moreover, it would lose all the freshness and flavor that make it the best tuna and avocado salad.

And now let's move on to the last piece of advice for today.

5. Which canned tuna to choose

Canned tuna is one of the fastest forms of protein. It is ready prepared so it is very easy to use in a healthy food or snack.

In addition, it is an important source of Omega 3 fatty acids especially DHA and EPA, which reduce inflammation and help prevent heart disease.

But not all types of canned tuna are the same. I recommend you choose one that contains wild tuna and not farmed. That's because farmed tuna doesn't have as many nutrients and is usually treated with antibiotics to prevent infections or disease.

Also, check if the canning has the MSC certificate for sustainable fishing. This means that the canning company respects sustainable fishing practices that ensure that we will have tuna for future generations.

Last but not least, check the ingredients list carefully. Always choose cans that contain only tuna, oil / spring water, salt and spices. That should be EVERYTHING! No hard-to-read additives or ingredients.

If you are on a low fat diet, then tuna in spring water is the best choice. I usually prefer the one in olive oil, because I like its texture which is more tender than the tuna in water. I always drain the oil and sometimes I don't even put any more oil in the salad.

That was all for today. These were all the tricks you need to know to make this salad.

Now it's time to get to work, then take a picture and post it on Instagram using the @theblondelish tag, so I can see how it turned out for you.
