Lets Make Tuna Salad

So there I was laying around one day craving some tuna salad and wanted to experiment, Well.. This is what I came up with, Tuna salad with avocado I wanted to change it up some. So I decided to do away with the mayo, thats right I said no mayo! Wait till you try it.

You have to try this Avocado Tuna Salad, when most people think of tuna salad you think of Mayo, but we are going to change it up a little. we will make it with Avocado instead. 


This won’t be your everyday tuna salad sandwich, leave out the mayo and replace it with avocado. Add some red onion, lemon zest and juice, sprinkle with the green of cilantro or parsley, and wow!

Put the avocado tuna salad between two pieces of toast and you have a perfect tuna salad sandwich with the lovely addition of avocado and without mayo. 




Since the avocado is taking the place of mayonnaise, it should be ripe and easy to mash with a fork. Choose an avocado that has some give to it when you squeeze it gently.

Also, because mayonnaise comes salted and avocados don’t, you’ll need to add more salt and pepper to this salad than you would normally.

The avocado does cause this salad to quickly start turning brown, so it’s best to make and eat this ASAP. That said, if you aren’t bothered by a bit of browning, the salad will be fine in a serving bowl refrigerated and eaten within a few hours.
