Cucumber Tuna Bites

Cucumber Tuna Cups – tasty, fresh appetizer that looks and taste great, be it a snack or a meal. Combination of the crunchy cucumber, cream tuna and avocado are a match made in heaven!

Seven cucumber tuna bites topped with cheese and avocado on a glass platter topped with fresh greens.

Hi everyone! How are your new year resolutions going? Since many make a resolution to eat better in the new year, here’s a recipe to help you along the way. I love myself a good tuna sandwich with fresh crunchy cucumbers, but sometimes when you want to stay away from carbs these cute Cucumber Tuna Cups can come really handy.

The lean unsaturated fats in both the avocado & tuna, plus omega 3 fatty acids are a bonus. But rarely does hearing why it’s good for me make it appetizing, so make it because tuna and cucumber together is a really great combination that comes with a pleasantly refreshing crunch!
