Tuna Salad ~ blackened tuna, pasta, and avocado

I love to make something new with leftovers.  I intentionally cooked some extra blackened tuna the other day just so I could make a salad.   I decided to make one with pasta and avocado for a new twist.

Blackened tuna salad

  • 10 o.z. tuna (I used 2 ahi tuna steaks that were about 5 o.z. each)
  • 8 o.z. uncooked pasta
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lime
  • salt and pepper

Cook tuna as desired ~ as I mentioned I went with my blackened version; cool until ready to use.  Cook pasta according to package.  Drain, rinse, and chill pasta.  Add mayonnaise and chili powder.  Break apart tuna and stir into pasta mixture.  Chill and serve with diced avocado seasoned with lime, salt and pepper.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
