Tuna and Avocado Salad

January 25, 2018  •  Fish & Seafood, Salads

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!
