Swimsuit Tuna Salad

Well you knew it was coming! Swimsuit weather. Already you are seeing guys working outside without their shirts. Soon everywhere they will be out mowing lawns, washing cars, playing ball, swimming. And all we can think about is our own waistlines.
Well remember those New Years Eve Resolutions about getting healthier and losing weight? Just because you ate an eclair this morning doesn't mean that you can't start right now, to watch what you are fixing and what you are eating.

This one meal just is not going to turn you into a swimsuit model overnight. This is not a sprint to the finish type of thing. A healthier you is a daily constant marathon. This is just one way to “pace” yourself so that we can reach that goal together.

By the way, did you know that even a ¼ cup of white, light tuna packed in water has 20 mg of cholesterol and 190 mg of sodium!

12 oz. Can of Chunk light Tuna (in water)
1 medium avocado
3 green onions (both white and green parts sliced thinly)
2 stalks celery cut in a small dice
3 hard cooked eggs (using only 1 of the yolks)
1 tsp mayonnaise
1 tsp yellow mustard
½ tsp lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Sweet paprika
Two large tomatoes

Hard cook the eggs, shell, and keep the whites and 1 of the yolks, chop them up.
Drain the tuna

Cut open the avocados and remove the pit, then spoon out the flesh into a medium bowl.
Add the mayonnaise, mustard, and lemon juice and mash together with back of a fork till it is well mixed. Adjust with salt and pepper.

Wash the tomatoes well and cut in half at the equator. Scoop out the insides so that the tops and bottoms are like boats.

 Now mix the chopped green onions, diced celery, and egg into the avocado mixture. Flake the tuna out of the can as you fold it into the mix.
Spoon mixture into each half of tomato and garnish with a slight bit of Sweet Paprika!

A cool summertime meal that is much more healthy than regular tuna salad and jammed full of flavor but your tummy wont feel bloated after this!
Summer and shirts off season is almost here. Are you ready?

There are no words ever dreamed of or created to express the euphoric joy that I feel serving and belonging to Master Indy. I try with each post to express that happiness.


To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
