Tuna-Stuffed PeppersKris Wetherbee | Delicious Living

Fresh lemon, avocado, and chives give tuna a zesty flavor (look for canned “light” tuna, which is lowest in mercury). For another taste twist, take advantage of the smaller, sweet banana peppers available in summer.
- Cut peppers in half lengthwise and remove seeds and membranes. In a medium bowl, combine cucumber and tuna and toss together.
- In a second bowl, mash 3/4 of the avocado with a fork. Add lemon juice, mayonnaise, chives, salt, and lemon pepper and mix thoroughly. Stir in tuna mixture. Cube remaining avocado and fold in gently.
- Fill pepper halves with tuna-avocado mixture. Sprinkle with croutons and garnish with chives.
