Avocado Tuna Salad Sandwich

Avocado Tuna Salad Sandwich (1)

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! Yep, you read that right. It’s protein packed and contains tons of vitamins. In my mind, the perfect lunch base. Pair it with avocado, and I have a new food obsession.

You may remember when I mentioned my doctor recommended me to up my leafy green intake. Well, she actually gave me a list of foods that I should try to incorporate into my diet to increase my Vitamin D and Calcium levels. On that list was yogurt, mushrooms, tuna, figs, sardines, sweet potatoes, tofu, prunes… And many other options!

I did take her advice but only to a certain extent. Since I’m a food blogger and always looking for new recipes to try out or invent, I decided it’s time to give canned seafood a chance.

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.

  1. Oh my goodness, this looks and sounds delicious! I actually have tuna and avocado quite often, but usually I just spread on the avovado and plonk the tuna on top! Your recipe looks much more sophisticated and tempting. Will definitely give this one a go, thanks for sharing.

  2. When I was a young teenager (and therefore very lazy with my cooking options) I would make tuna sandwiches all the time anytime I was home alone. Avocados weren’t big at the time though, so I might have to revisit this idea with a new ingredient!
