Tuna. It’s a finicky topic. It’s one of those things that people either love or hate. Right? Either I could find a ton of cans of tuna in your pantry, or you could be someone who refuses to walk down a particular grocery aisle because well, there are cans of tuna there.
If you’ve got someone in your house that likes to turn their nose up on tuna, perhaps this recipe could help. The tuna here is enhanced with other delicious flavors and is the perfect creamy texture.
Avocadoes are a favorite in grocery stores, especially on toast and in smoothies. They’re a great ingredient in this salad because they contain vitamins C, K, and B6!
What goes into this Tuna And Avocado Salad?
Tuna. This is, after all, a tuna salad. We’re using canned tuna here. Tuna is an excellent (and inexpensive) source of protein. It is also low in calories, especially if you’re getting the tuna that’s packed in water and not oil.
Avocado. People tend to shy away from foods that are high in fat. But did you know there are many healthy fats that our bodies need? Avocados are rich in healthy, omega-3 fatty acids which can improve eye and brain health. They’re also mild in flavor so they incorporate well into many different recipes.
Green onion. I think this absolutely makes the dish. It brings a deliciously fresh flavor and the perfect crunch to the salad.
Fresh dill. Again, freshness. And loads of it. It really takes boring tuna salads to another level.
Lemon, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper. It’s all about the flavors, right? These four ingredients add incredible flavor.
If you’re tired of eating boring tuna salads, make this Tuna And Avocado Salad. It’s a delicious bowl of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. Dip, fill, and top as you please.
