Lunch is hands down the most difficult meal for me.  Finding a healthy lunch to enjoy in the middle of the day always proves to be a challenge.  Sometimes there’s leftovers to enjoy, while other times I’m on my own to figure out what to eat.

I want something that’s naturally delicious, easy to prepare, and a healthy option for me.  That’s where Ocean Naturals Premium Tuna comes in.

Ocean Naturals is good, good for you, and good for the planet.  They start with fewer, better ingredients and then let the product speak for itself.  They pride themselves in hand-selecting only the best catch.  The proof is in the extraordinary flavor.  You can even see exactly where your specific can of tuna came from.  There’s a code you can enter online  that’s found on each can to find out.

Needless to say, Ocean Naturals Premium Tuna is the perfect catch for my weekday lunch {sorry… awful pun intended}.  That being said, I wanted to move beyond the traditional tuna salad sandwich.

The great thing is that Ocean Naturals is extremely versatile.  I’ve been able to whip up a few incredibly tasty meals that are surprisingly easy to make.  They’re light, yet filling, which is ideal for lunch.

Fiesta Tuna Bites


  • 1- 5 oz. can Ocean Naturals Premium Tuna
  • 1 small lime
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes {This is to add a slight bit of heat.  Opt for Cayenne pepper or some other spice if you’d prefer}
  • 1 cucumber, sliced into circles approximately 1/4″ thick

We’re going to start by slicing our cucumber.  This is going to serve as the base to hold our Fiesta Tuna mix.  I like my cucumber peeled– that’s optional.  You’ll want to slice your cucumber into round circles, approximately 1/4″ thick.

Once the cucumber is sliced, we’ll fix the filling.  Open the Ocean Naturals Premium Tuna and drain it.  Then put the tuna in a mixing bowl.  Add the diced avocado, diced tomato, red pepper flakes, as well as the juice from the lime.  You can also add a bit of lime zest if you’d like.  Gently fold the ingredients together until they’re well mixed.

Using a spoon, place some of the tuna mixture onto the top of each cucumber slice.

      Thanks Kristin! I originally thought those tortilla chips shaped like little bowls, but cucumbers are so much healthier and more delicious!
