Recipe for Avotuna

Here you get the recipe for a delicious and easy avocado tuna sandwich which we’ve titled the Avotuna. It is very easy to make and tastes absolutely delicious. While I personally looove the tuna sandwich at Subway’s, here you actually know you are getting real tuna in your tuna sandwich! 

This is just such a simple and quick thing to make and it’s full of both creamy goodness and healthy, tasty veggies that add a wonderful crunch and flavor. It’s a great sandwich for lunch as well as dinner. You can make them in just 20 minutes. It really doesn’t get much better than a delicious dinner in under half an hour!

The tuna salad is made with canned tuna, creme fraiche, fresh dill, and red onion. It’s a very simple and super tasty tuna salad to make, and you can use it in many other things such as a pasta salad, regular salad, tuna melt sandwich etc. The bread we like to use is a stone oven baked wholegrain roll that becomes super nice and crispy when toasted. It’s one of our favorite kinds of bread to use for a sandwich like this one.

Healthy Tuna Sandwich

It is one of the best tuna sandwiches you can make if you ask us. You can of course also use other kinds of bread, and you can leave out rucola if you don’t like the flavor of this type of lettuce. You can also add other elements - for example pickled onions would be a great addition to the creamy tuna salad. Fresh cucumber would also be a nice veggie to add. So basically, feel free to use what you have available at home since sandwiches like this are a great way to use your leftover vegetables rather than having them go to waste.
