I made this avocado cucumber tuna salad for lunch on Monday and we had it for dinner too because I made a lot of it and because this salad is just like a complete meal (veggies + protein). You feel so satisfied that you don’t even need to complement this salad with anything else. Well… You can always have a delicious healthy dessert after eating this salad. Great idea, right?! Hands up to all the chocolate addicts like me 😉 But in my defense I’m also addicted to salads 😉
How long does avocados last in this salad?
Avocados are truly the best. On my site, you find avocado recipes that will make everybody happy. From this nutritious Grilled Chicken Avocado Salad to this quick whole dinner meal Low-Carb Salmon Burgers with Avocado Coleslaw for example. You also can find side dishes like this Whole30 Creamy Avocado Cauliflower Salad or even a creamy dressing/sauce recipe such as this Creamy Avocado Sauce that it’s dairy-free and delicious. As you can see, avocados go really well with almost anything, but they can go bad pretty fast. That’s why when I’m at my local grocery store, I look for avocados with firm skin and no soft spots. Also, once I cut them, I wrap it tightly in plastic wrap before refrigerating. And sometimes I even sprinkle a little bit of lemon juice onto the exposed avocado flesh.
So, for this Avocado Cucumber Tuna Salad if I make it for the whole family to eat for dinner, for example, I add all the ingredients in a bowl including the avocados because I know I won’t have leftovers. But if I have I keep this salad in the fridge and it’s good for about 2 days. The lemon dressing helps avocados to stay good for longer.
If you are making this Avocado Cucumber Tuna Salad to bring to work. I think it’s better if you bring the avocado with you and add to your salad when it’s time to eat. It will be the last ingredient you add before eating to help keep them green and fresh for longer.
