Easy Avocado Tuna Salad
Skip the mayo and try this Easy Avocado Tuna Salad! It’s super flavorful, easy to make and a much healthier alternative to your favorite classic tuna salad recipe!
I love a tasty recipe that’s versatile enough to serve in lots of different ways and this tuna salad is just that. It’s also my recent favorite go-to for operation meal prep Sunday.
Lately I’ve been all about simple and convenient. So, when meal planning for the week, anything that I can throw together in Tupperware containers that will last me for a few days is just perfect. This tuna salad along with some spinach or wraps make lunches easy and healthy throughout the week. Especially, when I’ve fallen into that rut of eating the same. thing. every. day. I don’t know what your go-to-meals are, but all week I find myself eating a salad, turkey chili, or even cauliflower fried rice (which has been my FAVE lately just because it makes so much!). It’s nice to switch it up now and then…..just be prepared for those nosy co-workers to ask for the recipe. Hehe.
I know I talk about meal planning all the time, but it really does help me to stay accountable, makes for less chaotic mornings when I go to pack my lunch, saves money each week (since I go on ONE big grocery haul making sure to only get what I need for that week) and I’m staying healthy in the process. Every week I add one or two new recipes into the rotation to mix it up.
Enter this tuna deliciousness! I’m obsessed with tuna salads and this one ranks in the top 3 of my all-time favorites. I’m always sure to use Wild Selections® Solid White Albacore Tuna. It’s made with simple all-natural ingredients and not only does it have a firm meaty texture and mild, fresh taste, but it comes in deliciously big chunks so no need to worry about mushy tuna. It’s quality you can see the moment you open the can! It’s one of those items I always have on-hand in my pantry!
I so appreciate that Wild Selections® is affordable and such a great source of protein that can be incorporated into almost any dish. It’s so easy to pack on-the-go, knowing that all Wild Selections® tuna is Non-GMO Project Verified and is the only full line of Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable seafood. The blue MSC eco-label tells you the fish in your can comes from well managed fisheries and healthy fish stocks.
This Easy Avocado Tuna Salad proves that tuna doesn’t have to be lathered in mayo to taste good. Trust me – give it a try. You’ll love that this recipe is:
