tuna and avocado spread (perfect for a hot summer day)

I don’t know where you guys are, but over here the last few days have been unbelievably hot, and there are more coming our way! Who wants to cook in such misery? No one. So I decided to share this recipe of a spread with you. It is just perfect for a scorching summer day. We usually have it either as a dip with corn chips, or spread on homemade gluten-free bread slices in no-fuss sandwiches. It is completely sulfite-free, provided you are careful about the ingredients you use.


– 2 ripe avocados

– 1TBSP freshly squeezed lemon juice (If you are avoiding sulfites, please no bottled juice! It may contain citric acid, and this is a big no-no in our household)

canned tuna; now here I make sure the only ingredients are water and salt. In France the net weight showing on the can is 130 g, or 4.5 oz.

– a dozen black olives, preserved in oil or water, without any vinegar. My favourite are organic “kalamata” olives. Again, you have to read the label carefully.

natural sea salt (optional)

How to:

1. Pit the olives if necessary, then cut up into small pieces / slices. Drain the tuna.

2. Pit and and peel the avocado, and thoroughly mix with the lemon juice. Using an immersion blender will make things easier and smoother but you don’t have to.

3. Add the olives and tuna to the avocado paste. Taste before adding any salt!
