Stuffed avocados are easily one of my favorite lunches. I make several variations. They are so easy to make, usually pretty healthy, and oh so delicious. You can easily substitute canned or shredded chicken in this recipe, but I’m quite partial to a good quality tuna for the added healthy benefits. This recipe is quite simple with all of the elements of a traditional caprese salad with the addition of a protein and avocado. You know that’s going to be good! Give this a go for a quick and healthy lunch. Make sure you drizzle the balsamic vinegar just before serving to avoid discoloration. This is an easy one to enjoy!
2 avocados, halved and pitted
2 (4.5 oz) cans tuna, drained
5 oz sliced fresh mozzarella, diced
1 tomato, diced
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, chiffonade
salt and pepper, to taste
drizzle balsamic vinegar
1. Scoop out some of the avocado from the pitted area to widen the “bowl” area. Place the scooped avocado into a medium-size mixing bowl. Mash it with a fork.
2. Add the tuna, mozzarella, tomato, and basil. Season with salt and pepper. Stir it all together until everything is well mixed.
