Avocado Tuna Salad

Avocado Tuna Salad

The great thing about tuna salad is that you get a hefty dose of protein, good fat, selenium and Vitamin B12. The not so good thing… often times it is prepared with lots of mayonnaise, which adds more unhealthy saturated fat than is necessary. The good news is that there are lots of ways to prepare tuna in a healthy way, especially when you make it yourself!

This recipe for avocado tuna salad omits all mayonnaise and instead uses healthy avocado as the fat. The avocado helps to bind the tuna together while providing loads of potassium and fiber, something that mayonnaise is lacking. This avocado tuna salad is a simple and healthy lunch option!
