Tuna Avocado “Bruschetta” Toasts

If you’re a tuna person like me, this tuna avocado salad served like bruschetta on top of toasted ciabatta is pretty much a dream. It’s fresh and healthy, loaded with cheery summer flavors like garden parsley and chives, lemon and endive.

You can serve it as an appetizer on a large serving platter with crisp white wine like you’re in Italy, you can pack it for a picnic lunch or have it for dinner! Or maybe for breakfast, you savory breakfast people? There’s really not a bad time for tuna avocado toasts.
