Few combinations burst with as much flavor and zest as this mixture of avocado with lime and cilantro. If being prepared for later, the avocado and lime are best added just before serving.
4 cups mixed greens or baby spinach
1 carrot, shredded
4 ounces tuna (pouch or canned)
1 teaspoon fresh cilantro, chopped
1 avocado, pitted, peeled and cubed
2 lime wedges
Combine the greens and carrot in a salad bowl (or storage bowl). Add the tuna and cilantro and toss to combine. Just before serving, add the avocado and squeeze the lime wedges over the salad. Toss and serve immediately. The salad can be served as is or with added salad dressing. Avocado salad dressings match particularly well.
