First off, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I’m Mae from over at The Life Of A Compulsive Crafter. I was asked by the lovely ladies at TWSC to guest blog once a month and quickly said yes!
Though I’m not much of a gourmet cook (eek, recipe please!), I still enjoy being in the kitchen. Today I chose to take a super simple and well known lunch option, tuna sandwiches – and show you a fun way to green them up and make them a bit healthier for St. Patrick’s Day.
Green Tuna Sandwiches
1 can of tuna
1/2 an avocado
2 tbsp mayonnaise
Drain your tuna and place into a medium size bowl. Add your avocado and mayonnaise and mix well. If you like relish, add that as well. Because the avocado has a nice creamy texture, you’re able to use less of the mayonnaise making it healthier. Plus, I just love me some avocado’s. So, if you’re as big of fan as me, slice up the second half thinly and lay it onto your tuna sandwich.
I chose to eat mine spooned onto foccacia bread and added an extra punch of green by slicing a granny smith green apple as the side.
If you’re feeling extra green today, consider making this recipe, or you can use your imagination to dream up ways of turning some of your go-to recipe’s green. Pesto sauce? Spinach? I promise, it’s pretty fun! Have a great day!
