I know what you’re thinking. This is certainly the fanciest, most gourmet recipe that I have ever shared with you.
Well these days, with the second year of law school coming to a crazy close, I’m not doing too much fancy. It’s more about meals that are quick, cheap, taste good, and are at least moderately healthy! Enter this delicious tuna salad. What “kicks it up”? The subtle flavor of the sesame oil makes all the difference, I swear. The red bell pepper provides a much needed crunch, and the avocado and tomatoes keep things juicy and add great flavor.

Tuna is so good for you and is crazy cheap so it’s become a lunchtime staple in our house. If you turn your nose up at the thought of a boring old tuna salad, you should really try this. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
Back to studying for me. Thanks for reading!
