My two year old loved to pick out the almonds and coconut flakes. She doesn’t like tuna but she loves this *salad.
- 1-2 tbsp of toasted slivered almonds
- 1 tbsp of unsweetened toasted coconut flakes
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 hard cooked egg, sliced
- 1 can of salt free tuna packed in water (I like Raincoast Trading’s Solid White Albacore Tuna or Wild Planet White Albacore Tuna)
- 3 cups romaine lettuce or mixed salad greens
