Albacore salad

AlbacoreSalad (2)
There are many ways to prepare Albacore but I mostly prefer it in a salad. It is great if you can find fresh one, steam it, let it cool down and then add it to the salad, but if you can’t find one, you can just use canned. Since finding fresh is more difficult and sometimes people prefer to buy one that they know the source of, I will write the recipe with the canned one.

You would need:

For the salad
1 can of albacore
1 cup of pine nuts
1 lettuce ( you can use arugula and spinach if you like them as well)
2 avocado
2 cups cherry tomatoes
1 cup scallions

For the dressing

3 tbsp extra virgin olive
1/2 tsp salt
black pepper
2 limes

Time schedule:
5 min to wash and prepare
10 min to assemble the salad
Total 15 min

1. Wash all vegetables. Slice the cherry tomatoes, chop the salad and scallions.
2. Cut the Albacore and avocado in chunks. Add them to the mix.
3. In a dry saute pan brown the pine nuts just so you can release the nutty flavor. Let them cool completely and then sprinkle them on top of the salad.
4. Mix the olive oil, the salt, the juice from one lime and black pepper to make the dressing.
5. Garnish the salad with the dressing and a slice of lime, then serve.
