How to make the layered avocado tuna salad


The preparation of the avocado tuna salad is very simple. I divided it into four simple steps:

  1. preparation of the avocado
  2. preparation of the cherry salad
  3. preparation of the tuna mix with mayo and sriracha
  4. the layering of the salad itself

First, half the avocado, remove the bone and use a spoon to take off the skin. Cube the avocado and put it in a bowl. Squeeze a few drops of lemon juice over the avocado to prevent the oxidation process and it from getting black spots.

Second, wash the cherry tomatoes and cube them just like you did with the avocado. Also here, wash and finely chop some spring onion and parsley. Mix well. You may drizzle a few drops of olive oil.

Third, drain the oil from the tuna and put it in a bowl. Add the mayo and a bit of sriracha and mix.

Fourth and last, layer each of the parts to get a beautifully built-up avocado tuna salad.

How to layer the avocado tuna salad?

To get an appealing clean look, it is best to use a tartare ring or a ring mold of any shape you like. Place the mold on a plain plate, hold it in place with one hand and use your other hand to fill in the needed layers. Start with the diced avocado. Use a spoon to lightly press the avocado for it to get the shape of the mold. Then layer the tuna with mayo and sriracha. Again use the spoon for the same shaping purposes. Finally, top the final layer of cherry tomato salad.

Use both of your hands to gently and slowly lift the mold up leaving the beautifully arranged salad behind. That is all it takes to make a layered avocado tuna salad.

If you do not have a ring mold, you can serve the avocado tuna salad in a transparent jar for the same beautiful effect. Or, simply mix all the ingredients for a more rustic look.
