Many of my lunches are leftovers from dinner during the week.

Things like meatloaf, soup and pasta are almost better a day or two later than they are day of!

But, sometimes I like a good sandwich—anything from a classic PB&J or B.L.T, to something with a little more flair.

When I was at ALDI recently, I found these great packets of original chunk light tuna in water from Northern Catch® Harvest of the Sea. It’s labeled as dolphin safe, high in protein and low fat.

One pouch is a single serving—it’s easy open and requires no draining.

You could eat the tuna straight out of the pouch, but I thought it could be used in a different way (inspiration derived from the ripe avocados on my counter).

I mixed up the pouch of tuna with some mayonnaise, finely diced green onions, a squirt of lemon and salt and pepper, and then gently folded in bite-sized chunks of avocado.

It went perfectly on top of a piece of toasted sour dough bread—also from ALDI.

I did realize, however, that there was more than enough for two servings once the avocado had been mixed in.

So, share with a buddy, or you’ll have leftovers for the next day!
