Avocado Tuna Salad

Avocado Tuna Salad-7139

OH MY!  A friend took me out to lunch a couple of weeks ago to a restaurant I’d never been to before.  I wasn’t sure what to get so I took the waitresses recommendation for their Avocado Tuna Salad.  It was so good I just had to come home and make something similar.

It’s healthy and easy.  The avocado is taking the place of the mayo so make sure that you pick a ripe one that will be easy to mash.  Or, if you get unripe avocados, place them in a paper bag and it only takes a day or two and they’ll be ripe.  It only takes about 10 minutes to prepare and it makes enough for about 2 sandwiches.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Ingredients:

  • 1 5 oz can tuna, drained
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup minced celery
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • zest of one lemon
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • black pepper

Preparation:

  • Roughly mash avocado in medium bowl.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and mix with a fork, breaking up the tuna as you go.
  • Mix until the ingredients are well blended.

I put it on a piece of toast with a bed of lettuce.  This was about 1/2 cup of the tuna mixture.

Yummy for your Tummy
