Tuna and Avocado Salad

Recipe by Julesong

This is one of my adopted recipes. It looks like a dish my family and I would enjoy, so I hope to make it and edit it in the future.

Makes a delicious lunch! I made this for my boyfriend--and he loved it! I put his favorite--Tabasco Sauce--in it, and it was delicious. I just put one tablespoon of mayo and it was sufficiently wet. It would still taste good without mayo, for a healthier option. I made a tuna avocado wrap with a bed of spinach and a spinach whole wheat pita wrap. Kept us full for hours!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 large eggs, hard-boiled
  • 12 teaspoon of your favorite hot sauce
  • 1 cup mashed avocado (1 ripe avocado)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, to taste
  • 14 cup minced red onion
  • 1 (6 1/2 ounce) can tuna in water, drained
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, to taste (Best Foods, Hellmann\'s, or Vegenaise)
  • 2 tablespoons dill relish
  • salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Peel eggs and mash really well with a fork (more or less mince them).
  2. Peel, pit, and cube the ripe avocado, then place in bowl.
  3. Add the fresh lemon juice (helps keep the avocado from discoloring) and mash really well with a fork.
  4. Mix the egg mixture together with the avocado mixture and stir well.
  5. Drain water from tuna and mix with onions, avocado/egg mixture, dill relish, salt, hot sauce, and mayonnaise.
  6. Serve over lettuce.
