This is a really yummy and easy lunch! I love the flavors. What a great way to jazz up a can of tuna! Not a tuna fan? Try shrimp instead! Enjoy!
Do you deliver? I’ll take mine with no tomatoes please. 😉
Love the shrimp idea. Not a fan of tuna. Sounds delicious can’t wait to try it!
Looks delicious, healthier than the one I make(I put mayo con it 😊)
I making this today, looks so yummy, I so love eating healthy and feeling great as a result !!!
This is my favorite whole30 lunch!!! I make it almost the same way.
I put a little Dijon mustard in it sometimes for a different kick 😄
not following the diet plan but this sounds good.
I made something somewhat similar today but the main protein came from tofu…avocado, tofu, cucumber, mayonaisse, curry powder, cilantro, and a little bit of salt, pepper, and lime juice.
Thanks!! Looks really good. Can’t wait to try it on Friday. Usually it’s pizza, hot dogs or sandwiches and I’m trying to get out of that cycle!!
I am on day 13 of my first whole30. Going great so far:) thanks for the lunch idea!
Looks delish! Looks like I found what I’m eating for supper!👏👏thanks
Great idea Collin. Thank you.
Looks delicious, can’t wait to try it! Thanks Lina!!
Great with chicken too………had a couple chicken breast left over. I cubed them up and it was yummy!
I make my tuna salad by adding it to my romaine fresh salad, onion slices, lots of lemon, some tomato, sea salt, olive oil, some vinegar, yum
Looks so fresh and healthy! I appreciate the lighter menu items you have after the holidays. Can’t wait to try, thanks Lina!
Awwww dissed ee!!!
salmon might be good in here too
I’m calorie counting. I’m wondering if anyone has figured out how many calories per serving is in this? Looks so good!
I’m doing the whole thirty as well… Thanks for adding these recipes. I hope to see more to come!
Just wondering why my comment was deleted. I just pointed out that this is not true ceviche, which is typically made from raw meat.
Possibly because that comment started a long string of other comments making a big deal about the name, and it became really negative. There’s actually a perfectly innocent explinaton as to why it has this name. I explained it, but my comment was also deleted. It has to do with the fact that the person who created the original recipe was not trying to create a “true ceviche” but a quick and easy substitution with everyday ingredients you may have handy in your pantry.
That looks really good. Thanks for posting!
I’m not on the Whole30 but this recipe looks so good and I have cans and cans of albacore in my cabinets, back in Dec CVS was having it on sale for anywhere from $.69-.89 a can and I would stock up, this recipe uses everything that I use on an everyday basis so nothing I have to go out and buy except for the butter lettuce which I have never tried but willing to give it a try, thanks for the recipe!!!
Oh you’re welcome! Enjoy 😊
I’m not doing Whole30 but after seeing Collin’s post yesterday I’m definitely thinking it’s something that I should do. Thank you Lina for posting a Whole30 recipe and something that looks delicious. The guys that work for me always talk about how if it (food) tastes good then it’s not good for you, which I know is not true as there are plenty of good tasting foods that are good for you, but I’m glad to see something that looks delicious also be nutritious! Thanks again!
Does this keep ok in the fridge? I’d love to bring it to work for lunch but would need to prepare either the night before or in the morning and I’m worried the avocado would brown….
That is what i was wondering to? i know if you put lime (and i have heard pam but have not tired this) on the avocado it wont brown ?
It didnt keep for me as well. But maybe prepare ahead and bring an avacado with you? Just a thought. Thanks!
I find that tossing avocado chunks with grated (or chopped) onions and a squirt or 2 of lime (or lemon) juice & olive oil, and sticking the seed in the middle keeps it from browning badly by lunch time. Another tip I read, but haven’t tried, is to use a very shallow bowl (like a rubbermaid container), cover with saran wrap then put the lid on top to keep the air out.
off topic but what make/model is the camera that was used for this pic? Looking to replace mine and Lina’s pictures are always so crisp. May be the photographer 😉
Oh thanks for your kind words! I use a Nikon D5100. Lots of my food pics are with a 50mm lens. Thanks!
thanks…I’m definitely going to look into buying that camera! Your pictures are so vivid!!
I currently use a NikonD40 but I think it’s worn out.
