Open-Faced Tuna Sandwich with Avocado

Tuna sandwiches can be really boring, but so convenient when you need a fast lunch.  I think adding the avocado to this sandwich dresses it up a bit, but more importantly gives you a dose of healthy fats.

Whole wheat bread, sliced
1 can tuna- packed in water
2 tbsp.  mayo
1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley, and dill
1 green onion chopped
1/2 a lemon's juice
1 hass avocado
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

First toast the bread with a little olive oil. Next take the can of tuna and drain well. Make sure you get rid of all of the excess liquid. Combine the tuna, mayo,  lemon juice, onions, herbs and salt until the mixture is nice and creamy. Top the bread with the tuna salad and then top it with cheese. Next take the avocado and slice thinly. Place on top of the sandwich and drizzle with olive oil. Season the top with a little salt and fresh ground pepper.
