I love this paleo avocado tuna salad. It makes a great quick and easy paleo snack or lunch. And it’s another way to eat one of my favorite foods — avocados. This recipe uses just four essential ingredients, but it reminds me of the old school tuna salad I used to eat as a kid. For me it’s a true paleo comfort food. Avocado tuna salad with a quick tomato soup makes a perfect fast meal.
It’s really simple to put this avocado tuna salad together. You can use whatever tuna you have — leftover tuna from last night’s dinner or a good quality canned tuna. Cut the avocado in half and scoop out the middle of both halves leaving a shell of avocado flesh. You want to have about half of the avocado in the bowl to use for the salad. Add some fresh lemon juice, chopped onion and mash together. Then mix in the tuna.
- 1 avocado
