Mango Avocado Tuna Stacks

Mango Avocado Tuna Stacks
As I’m sitting here looking out my window and seeing a BLANKET of WHITE (yes we’re having yet another snow day here), I’m dreaming about warmer weather and quick, simple and flavorful foods. Had I known that my kids would have been out of school for yes count them TWO weeks because of said weather we might have planned a vacation to someplace tropical where I’m certain we would have been able to nosh on things like this Mango Avocado Tuna stack. Since that didn’t happen I can always pretend I’m off to warmer weather and make these myself. If I close my eyes and sit in front of the fireplace it “almost” feels like it.

Mago Avocado Tuna Stacks
This mango avocado tuna stack is perfect as an appetizer or light lunch. While the mango and avocado are refreshing and compliment the tuna, Genova Tonno is the star of this dish.

The hardest part of this recipe is the prep work. Especially if you’re prone to eat half of the mango and avocado while you’re making it like I am. Once you have all your ingredients sliced and diced it comes together quickly. Each layer is seasoned to perfection and they all work together like they were made for each other. Stacks are pretty sexy and are bound to impress your dining mates BUT if you’re not feeling like stacking it’s just as good in a bowl. Options you know we love them. Know what else we love?
