Tuna Guac?

Ten days.

That's how long I have to wait until I get to step back on Mexican soil. It's also the day I'll receive my LSAT score (provided the release date is kept). So to say that I'm anxious/excited/thrilled/nervous is an understatement. I'm trying my hardest not to think too much about the LSAT--I already spent four months obsessing over it--but it's proving to be difficult.

Here's the problem. I want those ten days to go by as fast as possible since I want to go home, see my friends and attend my cousin's wedding (which is the main reason why I'm making the trip). But on the other hand, I can't predict my score, so I might want this LSAT limbo to last longer. If I don't know my score, I can't get upset about it right? I'll take the middle ground then: average-speed ten days + score-unknown bliss.

Ten days. Of limbo. That I vow to enjoy to the fullest.

Here's a delicious recipe for a modified guar/avocado salad. I paired it with some Wasa crackers for a light lunch, but I'm sure it tastes great atop a bed of greens or wrapped in a whole wheat lavash. Enjoy!

Chunky Tuna Avocado Salad (adapted from Kalyn's Kitchen)
Active time: 10 minutes. Total time: 20 minutes.
Makes 2-3 servings.

  • 1 5oz. can Albacore tuna in water, drained 
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 1 cucumber, sliced into rounds and diced
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil 
  • 1 avocado
  1. Place tuna in a medium sized bowl and mash with a fork. Add tomato, cucumber, cilantro and green onions and mix well. Add lime juice, vinegar and oil and stir to combine; season with salt and pepper.
  2. Carefully fold in avocado pieces and mix well, but making sure you don't crush them--unless you like your salad less chunky. Chill for 10 minutes in refrigerator and serve.
