Avocado Tuna Sandwich

0 18

If you haven’t tried tuna salad made with avocado (or even if you have), you’re in for a lunchtime treat. The avocado gives it a healthy and eminently satisfying creaminess, while chopped celery, red onion, and red bell pepper add a delightful crunch. We’re especially fond of the sharp flavor from the lemon juice and mustard (we used French’s Classic Yellow Mustard). Sandwiched between your go-to sliced bread, you can have one ready to go in just 10 minutes.

1/4 c.

extra-virgin olive oil

large avocados, peeled, seeded, and diced


(5-oz.) cans yellowfin tuna, drained, preferably oil-packed


slices whole wheat or other preferred bread

  1. Make the dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk the lemon juice, mustard, cumin, garlic powder, and pepper flakes, until combined. While whisking, slowly drizzle the olive oil into the lemon juice mixture until fully combined. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Make the salad: Add the cucumber, onion, bell pepper, celery, and cilantro to the dressing. Toss to coat. Add the avocado and toss, mashing slightly with a fork until a very chunky mash forms. Gently fold the tuna into the avocado mixture, letting it break up into bite size pieces or smaller. 
  3. Mound the salad on top of 4 pieces of bread and sandwich with remaining bread.
