Description

This fresh and healthy avocado tuna salad swaps the classic mayo for nutrient-rich avocado! It will become your new go-to after first bite.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 5-ounce can white meat tuna
  • 1/2 celery rib (1/4 cup finely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill pickles (2 pickles)
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice*
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Drain the tuna. Place it in a bowl and use a fork to break apart any large clumps.
  2. Roughly chop the avocado. Finely chop the celery, red onion, and dill pickles.
  3. Mix together the tuna and vegetables with the remaining ingredients. Eat immediately: the avocado will start to brown after exposure to air.

Notes

*Mix it up! Try it Mexican-style: swap the lemon for lime and add 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro!
