Thanks to Blue Harbor for sponsoring this recipe post for Greek Tuna Salad Stuffed Avocados. They make for a quick, fresh, light meal that involves no cooking.
Who else is in a lunch slump?
Dinner takes a little more effort, but not too much considering I have some type of bowl recipe most evenings or we get takeout. I usually just choose a meat, whether that be grilled chicken, lean ground turkey or some type of fish, roast whatever veggies happen to be in the fridge and top it off with mashed avocado.
Lunches, though, can be so boring. I need something quick with very little prep. And back when I was working outside the home, it was essential that my lunch be something that I could easily pack on the go. If you’re feeling less than inspired in the lunch department, I’ve the perfect recipe to totally kick you out of the lunch slump.
These Greek Tuna Salad Stuffed Avocados come together in less than 15 minutes and only require one bowl and 7 ingredients. They are great for serving guests, but also work as a make ahead meal for lunches through the week. If you do decide to meal prep a few of these for the next day or so, just spritz the avocados down with a little lemon juice to keep them from browning.
Now, I will say, I’m pretty picky about my tuna. While I really like tuna, not just any brand will do. I seek tuna that tastes fresh with a lovely flakey texture and I also try to purchase tuna that is sustainably caught.
I’m thrilled to have found Blue Harbor Fish Co. Blue Harbor pouches are super convenient and combine the simple ingredients of sustainably-caught, wild Albacore tuna, water, a touch of sea salt or no salt added with no preservatives to give you just a fresh flavor of tuna.
Whether you’re whipping up a tuna salad or just eating Blue Harbor straight from the pouch, you can trust that Blue Harbor tuna is hand-selected and each pouch will provide you with a delicious, mild, clean flavor.
And avocados are the perfect vehicle for serving up this wonderful tuna, salad-style, to create such an easy and nutritious packable dish. I hope you all have as much fun with this recipe as I did! It’s:
Quick + easy
& So delicious!

- 2 large avocados, halved and pitted
- 2 (3 oz.) pouches Blue Harbor tuna in water
- 1/4 cup chopped kalamata, black or green olives
- 1/4 cup minced red onion
- 1/4 cup chopped fire roasted red peppers
- 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil or parsley
- salt and pepper to taste
- Scoop out some of the avocado from the pitted area to widen the “bowl” area.
- Place the scooped avocado into a medium-size mixing bowl.
- Mash it with a fork.
Add the tuna, olives, onion, bell pepper, and parsley to the mixing bowl.
Stir it all together until everything is well mixed. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. You may not need any salt, as the olives make this salty enough for me.
- Scoop the tuna into the avocado bowls and enjoy!
