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 crunchy bread. This recipe is great for experimenting with a variety of different vegetables, spices, and vinegars.

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!

I turned this into a salad by putting the tuna mixture on a bed of spinach that I had dressed with a simple olive oil/lemmon juice dressing. I sliced the avocado and placed it around the mound of tuna. Very nice presentation.

I also used this recipe to make a salad and made a few changes. I layered the bottom with lettuce. Added some lemon juice to the tuna mix. Then topped off with avocado and tomato slices. Turned out to be delicious!
