A quick and easy refreshing summer salad that requires no cooking at all. Enjoy this recipe thanks to my friends at Portofino Tuna.


  • 8 cups lettuce/mixed greens
  • 2 cans Portofino Tuna in Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 cucumber (sliced thin)
  • 1 cup radishes (sliced thin)
  • 1 red bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup red onions (minced)
  • 1/2 avocado (chopped (reserve other half for dressing))
  • 1 cup Feta cheese (crumbled)

Avocado Lime Dressing

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 lime (juice)
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 2 water (more to thin)
  • salt & pepper (to taste)


  1. Add lettuce to a large bowl, top with tuna, cucumber, radishes, bell pepper, blueberries, red onion, avocado and feta if using.
  2.  In a blender or using an immersion blender, blend together ingredients for dressing until smooth. Add extra water to thin as needed.
  3.  Pour the dressing over salad and toss to combine.


Note: For meal prep, make into 4 salads by adding 2 cups of lettuce, ½ can of tuna, and ¼ of the rest of the ingredients. Leave dressing off until serving.

Tip: make this dairy-free by leaving out the feta cheese.
