Cucumber Avocado Salad with Cucumber, Tuna, Cilantro, and Lime Recipe

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Side Dishes, Salads

 Ingredients List

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 T fresh-squeezed lime juice (I used my fresh-frozen lime juice.)
  • 1 large European cucumber (or 2 smaller cucumbers)
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion
  • 1 can (5 oz.) tuna packed in olive oil
  • salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste
  • Dressing Ingredients:
  • 2 T mayo (can use light mayo, but there is not much mayo and full-fat mayo adds a lot of flavor)
  • 1 T fresh-squeezed lime juice (I used my fresh-frozen lime juice).


1. Dice the avocado into 1/2 inch pieces, put in a bowl large enough to hold the whole salad, and toss with one tablespoon of lime juice.

2. Peel strips from the cucumber if desired, then cut into fourths lengthwise and slice into bite-sized pieces. Chop the cilantro and thinly slice the green onion. Whisk together the mayo and lime juice to make the dressing.

3. Add the chopped cucumbers, chopped cilantro, and sliced green onions to the avocado and gently combine. Add the dressing and stir just enough to combine. Drain the oil from the tuna and use a fork to partly break apart the tuna into chunks. Stir tuna into the salad and GENTLY combine (don't over-stir; you want the tuna to remain chunky.) Season to taste with salt and fresh-ground black pepper and serve.

4. This will last okay in the fridge for a day, but it's far better freshly made.
