Avocado and tuna tapas

    20 min

    Living in Spain I have come across a literal plethora of tapas. This is a light, healthy tapa that goes best with crisp white wines and crusty bread. This recipe is great for experimenting with a variety of different vegetables, spices and vinegars.

    Very tasty and easy.  -  15 May 2013


    I was hesitant to make this at first but I was hungry, had all the ingredients at hand and really didn't feel like eating fastfood. This is soo good. I even got an "mmm..mmm" from my hubby. Although I am not a big fan of canned tuna I do love avocados and keep finding ways to make it a part of my diet. Avocados are loaded with MUFA's (mono-unsaturated fat -->the good kind) which actually helps your body get rid of the "bad" fat. So Gracias for sharing this recipe!  -  14 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
