Express-ive Meals – Tuna and Avocado Caesar Salad

Posted by Magic of Spice

Tuna and Avocado Caesar Salad
This is my all time favorite, through together meal
It is very simple yet presentable enough for guests

What you will need:
1 small head of romaine lettuce
Or 1 large head, halved
½ avocado, sliced
1 small can light tuna, in oil
1-2 tablespoons pepitas, roasted
¼ cup micro greens
¼ cup croutons
Caesar dressing and cracked pepper, to taste
(You can use prepared dressing, 
or use the link at the bottom of this post to make your own)

Let’s get layered:
Wash and dry lettuce then remove the ends
Place the two largest leaved on a plate
Starting with the next largest leaf, place on top of the others
Continue placing remaining leaves directly on top of the third
Basically making a boat, continue until the last leaf is 
Is just large enough to hold the tuna
Arrange tuna in your top boat leaf
Place avocado around the tuna, add pepeitas,
Micro greens, croutons, dressing and pepper
