    A more sophisticated tuna salad recipe, where tinned tuna is combined with bulgur (cracked wheat), bacon and avocado and dressed with lemon juice.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 3/4 cups bulgur (cracked wheat)
    • 225g bacon
    • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 2 (185g) tins tuna, drained

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Place the bulgur into a saucepan with at least 3 times its depth in water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat then reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Add water if necessary. When the bulgur is tender, stir in a pinch of salt and simmer for 5 more minutes. When done, drain and set aside to cool.
    2. Cook bacon in a frypan over medium-high heat until crispy. Drain, crumble and set aside. Place the diced avocado into a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper then toss with lemon juice.
    3. In a salad bowl, combine the tuna and cooled bulgur. Add the bacon and the avocado and toss gently.

    Excellent - we really loved this recipe!! My husband and I made it as a meal, and served it on top of some lettuce. It was so tasty with the mix of bacon, tuna and avocado. I definitely recommend this dish!  -  16 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Not bad but after tasting it found it a little bland so I added extra pepper and a little onion powder. No one really liked the dish except me so there's a lot leftover...as mentioned by another reviewer...I will add tomato and onion on a bed of romaine to the leftovers and see how that goes!  -  26 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
