I love avocados and have one pretty much daily – usually just on it’s own with a sprinkle of pink sea salt and a drizzle of lime juice, however when I discovered that tuna salad combined with avocado is SO FREAKING AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS, I can’t have tuna salad any other way.

I always add pickle to my tuna salad and prefer to use avocado mayo – which is mayo made with avocado oil – however you can use regular mayo as well. This healthy and filling lunch also is great to make ahead, just prepare the tuna salad and store in the fridge – and assemble it when you’re ready to enjoy!
