Tuna and mayo with avocado and walnuts? That's my fave.

Hot tuna with melted cheddar and fried mushrooms?

Do u just mix the the avacado and walnuts in with the tuna?

And do you use any kind of batter on the mushrooms?

I just chop and mix the avocado in, yes. Lemon juice helps, too, or balsamic.

I just sauté the mushrooms in a little butter. Grate in some cheese, mix in the tuna. You could toss in some spinach too.

I've put tuna into an omelette with cheese, too.
