A Healthy Twist on a Favorite
This quick avocado tuna salad was conceived during our summer vacation at the beach on the last day. We were running out of some ingredients, yet still had some other items we wanted to use up. The plan had been for tuna straight out of the can as a lunch option, but I was in the mood to get creative. The end result had just the right balance. This is an easy, quick meal to prepare!
The Ingredients and Preparation
You will need a lemon, a little onion, garlic cloves, some tomato, one large avocado, seafood seasoning and a can of tuna. An avocado tool makes things extra quick and easy.
The only ingredients I used in total for this avocado tuna salad was the avocado and tuna. And after reading that, I hope you chuckle like I did at the irony of that statement! 🙂 The point is that this recipe has simple ingredients and requires little preparation before you get to enjoy.
Once you dice some tomato and onion, then mince garlic and juice the lemon. Mix all ingredients with a tsp of seafood seasoning. I recommend refrigerating for about a half hour to let the flavors meld, but not required.
How to Eat Avocado Tuna Salad
You can eat this just as prepared if you like. I also recommend with tortilla chips or crackers. But, today, I had done a spin ride and needed the extra calories and protein. I decided to make this an avocado tuna salad toast. With the whole wheat bread the avocado tuna salad has TONS of protein, about 10 grams, so it is also great as a recovery meal.
I really hope you enjoy this quick meal!
Great with tortilla chips, crackers, or served on toast.

While refrigerating, toast bread or have a drink 🙂 Use within 24 hours.
