recipe adapted from All Recipes

I have made this recipe a few times now and must say it has gotten different reviews. The first time I made it my best friend was over and took the leftovers home to her boyfriend who texted me the next day saying it was “amaze-balls.” His exact words. Every time I have seen him since then he has mentioned how he still dreams of my avocado boats and tells people about them.  My boyfriend, on the other hand thought they were just “ok, good.” I think it all depends on how much you like canned tuna. My boyfriend doesn’t; my friend’s does. So that might just be the reason for the difference in opinion.  I like this recipe because it’s quick to make yet tastes crisp and fresh. I think its a great side/salad to a heavy entree. It’s light and has an interesting presentation.  So give it a try and let me know what you think!
