    Truth is, a perfect California avocado needs little else to justify its existence as a salad. A sprinkle of salt, a spoon, and call it a day.

    But if you have a can of specially seasoned tuna, widely available these days in any grocery store, you can turn that avocado into lunch. I am using a spicy Thai-flavored tuna for this salad, and the creamy avocado tames the spice just enough, while the Thai chili flavor amps up the avo. It’s a marriage made in heaven.
