Healthy Recipe: Avocado Tuna Salad

IMG_8784IMG_8779 IMG_8780 IMG_8781It’s not a surprise, that I love Avocados. They are a heart healthy fat, packed with rich flavor, the lead ingredient in Guacamole (my fave) and also serve as a great substitute for mayo (I hate mayo!)

I use avocados a lot on my turkey and roast beef sandwiches, as a spread to add some flavor and some texture to the sammie, but you can use it salad mixtures, like tuna salad or egg salad. Here is a recipe that I use to make Tuna Salad.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 Packet (or can) of Tuna
  • 1/2 Fully Ripe Avocado (you want it soft so it blends)
  • 1 Diced Hard Boiled Egg (egg whites only)
  • Salt, Pepper, Old Bay Seasoning

 

 

 

Directions: 

  1. Add tuna, avocado, and diced egg whites,  to a bowl and mix with a fork until combined
  2. Add Salt, Pepper, and Old Bay to taste and combine with a fork
  3. Serve & Enjoy

 

 

Ways to Eat It: 

  • Tuna Melt: Toast whole grain or sprouted bread, I like Ezekiel Bread or Dave’s Killer Bread, and add a slice of tomato and cheese.
  • Salad Topping: Add a scoop onto a bed of lettuce and add some salad fixings. Serve with a mustard vinaigrette.
  • Snack: Serve with whole grain crackers or pita chips

 

How else would YOU enjoy this? I’d love to see your variation of this recipe!
