These simple tuna & avocado cucumber toppers are one of my favourite savoury, no fuss appetisers. They take no time at all to make and are perfect for last minute guests.

Using healthy ingredients they are also a great option for a quick lunch or simple snack.

The recipe is gluten free, dairy free friendly and made with ingredients to nourish. The tuna provides a source of protein and avocado a source of good fats to keep you feeling satisfied.

What is the best tuna to use?

When it comes to tuna, it’s ideal to be aware of which you use. I choose a good quality tuna that is sustainably caught and one that has no added preservatives or additives. I use Little Tuna, it’s sustainably caught in Australia, comes in glass jars and without poor quality ingredients added. My favourite in their range is their tuna in extra virgin olive oil.  Use code LOVE10 for 10% off the Little Tuna range.

I make these tuna & avocado cucumber toppers a lot for guests and they are always surprised how delicious and easy they are!
