Avocado Tuna Salad

If you are looking for healthy options that taste good, this is the recipe for you, a simple tuna salad with avocado and no mayo. It sounds like a weird combination but it does have a great flavor with a little tomato, onion, jalapeno pepper, and a spritz of lime juice or lemon juice. Serve with whole grain crackers, pita chips, or even on a good roll for a sandwich. (I would slice tomato for sandwich.) Your light meal is on the table in minutes. It’s a perfect lunch on the weekend.

  1. Hi! I loved this recipe and I’m thinking of trying it out! It looks like a version of guacamole with tuna, very good idea! A hug, Raquel

    1. If you like guacamole, you’ll like this. It has many of the same flavors; the avocado is cubed rather than mashed. I guess you could mash it for the salad too if you want.

    1. Don’t buy soft avocados because they are probably already going bad. Buy hard ones still green. Take home and put in a paper bag that you close. Leave it for 2 days to ripen. Check to see if it is softer. If yes, put in refrigerator and eat within 2 days. I like mine simple with salt and lemon juice.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
