Mexican Tuna-Avocado Tostadas

Because it's one of our favorite healthy convenience foods for a quick lunch (or dinner), we've taken canned tuna -- high in protein and Omega-3s -- beyond the classic mayo-laced sandwich salad. Here, rich avocado is swapped in for an easy salad that takes canned tuna to the next level.
