This tuna with avocado salad can be eaten alone or made into a lettuce wrap by plating it on a few butter lettuce leaves. You could also use it as a keto sandwich filling by placing it between two chaffles. Need to reserve calories and/or fat? Serve it open-faced on one Chaffle vs two. 

 

TIP- the salt will draw out the water from the cucumber, so wait until you’re about to serve or eat to salt.
