Tuna and Avocado Salad
In an effort to eat less animal, more vegetables in 2018, I’m on the lookout for ways to change even the tiniest of things that might contribute to a healthier style of eating. Most traditional tuna salads contain mayonnaise which is made from oil and eggs, so it’s a less healthy fat. You could make tuna salad with extra virgin olive oil – it will taste yummy! – but in this case I wanted a creamier texture. Enter the avocado! It’s a healthy, plant based fat, and if you make sure it’s fully ripe, it mashes up nice and creamy. You can put whatever else you like in your tuna salad – I used 1 can of tuna in water, drained, 1 stalk of celery, diced small, about 2 tablespoons diced red onion, and half of an avocado, mashed until creamy. Season as you like with salt and pepper and dig in, knowing you’re eating a super food today!
