Paleo Tuna Veggie Bowls

I have a pretty strict no-cooking-when-it’s-over-90-degrees rule, so this summer I’ve been eating a lot of quick and easy salads that come together in a pinch. The problem with salads, as I’m sure you know, is that they can get really boring. This one is different–I put just a little lettuce in a bowl and then load it with sliced radishes, julienned cucumbers, sugar snap peas, cucumber noodles, and any other fresh veggies I might have in my fridge before topping the whole thing with a can of tuna.

You could serve this salad with my Paleo sesame vinaigrette, but I also like it with just a drizzle of sesame oil and a teaspoon of Thai chili garlic paste–pretty much the same ingredients without taking the extra minute or two to mix them together first.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Servings: Serves 1-2


1 5-ounce can of Bumble Bee Solid White Albacore Tuna
1 cup of lettuce, chopped
1-2 radishes, sliced thinly
1/2 of a large cucumber, spiralized or julienned
1 medium carrot, julienned
5-6 sugar snap peas, sliced
1-2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
1-2 slices or wedges of fresh lime
1/4 of an avocado, sliced
A drizzle of sesame oil
1 teaspoon (more or less depending on heat preference) of Thai chili garlic paste
Sesame seeds, for garnish
Salt and pepper, to taste


In a bowl, layer veggies over lettuce and top with drained tuna. Season with salt and pepper, then dress the salad with a little sesame oil. Serve with a small spoonful of Thai chili garlic paste and top with avocado, cilantro, and sesame seeds. Serve with fresh lime wedges.
