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.
