Infinitely healthier than commercially pre-prepared tuna mayo, this Tuna Avocado mix can basically be 'wrapped' in whatever is to hand - romaine lettuce leaves, red cabbage leaves, deseeded bell pepper halves and nori seaweed sheets are a personal favourite. You can even just serve it piled into the empty avocado skins after scooping out the flesh from the two halves.

Any leftover mix can be kept in the fridge - I recommend leaving the avocado stone in the bowl to prevent it going brown. Add a finely diced deseeded chili for a kick if you fancy.
