Avocado Tuna Salad Sandwich is a quick, easy, and healthy lunch option! Simply mix together avocado, tuna, red onion, lemon juice, dijon mustard, and spices.
When I discover a new product or pairing, I tend to go a little overboard with it. Ahem, sweet potatoes, tofu, kale… My latest obsession is out, canned tuna! It’s protein packed and contains tons of vitamins. In my mind, the perfect lunch base.
After my husband did some research on which brand, what type, etc. we should get, we decided on Bumble Bee Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water. It’s gluten-free, kosher, and delicious! I honestly can’t believe I’m saying those words!
For years, I never bought canned seafood because I didn’t know anything about it and the only experience I had with it was my best friend in high school opening her can in the lunchroom and receiving glares. Thankfully, my husband and I both work from home so we don’t have to worry about stinking a break room up!
Since I love avocado, what better pairing to go with!? Of course, it totally worked and we both really enjoyed it. We even added some Dijon mustard and red onion to spruce it up a bit. I have been tempted to recreate a chicken salad sandwich with tuna, including apples and walnuts–but I’m not sure I need to mess with this simple and tasty mixture.
