This Avocado Tuna Salad is so delicious and loaded with good stuff such as chunks of tuna, avocados, cucumbers and my secret ingredient, sun-dried tomatoes! This avocado tuna salad is creamy, full of nutrients and perfect for lunch.
AVOCADO TUNA SALAD
Tuna salad is one of those dishes I make year round, regardless of season, but a couple years ago I started making this avocado tuna salad and I’ve been making it ever since. Both hubs and I love it, it’s so quick to put together, and it makes for a great lunch. You can find my tuna salad recipe here.
The great thing about these types of salads is that they are quite versatile. Not only can you add ingredients you love but you can serve it up in a sandwich or a wrap, or over a bed of greens. I love it, it’s easy to make and perfect for meal prep!
AVOCADO TUNA SALAD DRESSING
I love this dressing and while I change it around sometimes, this is the base of it. I love it because it’s creamy and it’s so full of flavor. However, you could skip the mayonnaise if you wanted to, I’ve made it both ways, and I’ve also used vegenaise before and couldn’t really tell the difference.
I also used a tarragon Dijon mustard, which I love, but plain mustard works as well.
But my special ingredient here is the sun-dried tomatoes.
While you might think it’s a weird ingredient to add to avocado tuna salad, they really do work. They add a bit of sweet-tart flavor to the salad and a bit of chewy texture. Trust me, you just have to try it.
I love to serve this with toasted bread or make a sandwich, but many times I even just like it on its own. Give it a try, it’s so delicious and avocados and tuna go really well together.
HOW TO STORE LEFTOVER AVOCADO TUNA SALAD
Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Mine hasn’t turned brown because of the avocados, however save the avocado pit and stick it in the container. It helps to make sure it stays green.
