Avocado Tuna Salad


I can't believe I've never thought of this before! It took the Avocado Cookies to turn on the green light bulb.

Tuna was at an unbelievable low price in Florida.  What could I make that's different and healthy?

Celery was in the fridge, shallot in the basket and one avocado ready to use. Perfect ingredients.


A whole wheat wrap and I had lunch.

This was my travel wrap when went back to NY. It's filling and no need for refrigeration. Max even liked it!

Ingredients:

2 cans  light tuna in water- drained

1/2 cup chopped celery

1 ripe avocado

1 shallot- diced


Directions:

Place all of the ingredients in a medium bowl. With with a fork mash the avocado and break up the chunks of tuna as you mash, until the ingredients are well combined.

  1. Perfect for traveling, Linda. Isn't it amazing how many things you can make with avocado besides guacamole? I've got a chocolate cookie recipe on my radar to make soon.

    1. I hate eating the crap food on the road. I never get what I want and who knows how it is prepared. Making this I didn't have to think about what should I eat.

    1. I feel the same about bread. If I could bake bread like Carol I would weight a lot more then I do now!

  4. I have to pass on this one. Avacados I can't eat. I'm alergic to them. It does look good. I think I will replace it with a chopped hard boiled egg.
