Tuna Stuffed Avocado

Tuna stuffed avocados are my new favorite lunch recipe – and I think they’ll soon be yours. I’ve always been a fan of tuna salad but recently realized that I just don’t make it nearly as often as I used to. Because I don’t eat much gluten-free bread (and I used to eat tuna salad on sandwich bread), my old recipe inadvertently fell by the wayside.

But it’s time to resurrect it don’t you think? And what better way than to use avocados as the new delivery mechanism for the most delicious tuna salad recipe.

How to Make Tuna Stuffed Avocados

One of the things I love about this recipe (in addition to the bright, fresh flavor) is how easy it is to make.

Just add the tuna, mayonnaise, celery, onion, herbs, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper to a small mixing bowl. Use a fork to break up the tuna and thoroughly mix all of the ingredients together.

Then use a large knife to cut your avocados in half and remove the seed. Add a few dollops of tuna salad onto each avocado half and that’s it – so easy. To eat the tuna stuffed avocados, just use a spoon or fork to scoop out a bite of the tuna salad with a chuck of avocado. It’s creamy, savory, herby and slightly crunchy from the celery and onion. Totally delicious.

Tuna Stuffed Avocados

Tuna stuffed avocados are a simple combination of tuna salad and avocados. They’re easy to make, loaded with healthy protein, healthy fats and utterly delicious. Watch the video above to see how easy they are to make!

Ingredients

  • 4 avocados
  • 2 (5 ounce) cans tuna (I prefer albacore tuna)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 stalk of celery, diced
  • 2 tbsp red onion, diced
  • 1-2 tbsp chopped parsley, chives and/or other herbs
  • 1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  • Add the tuna, mayonnaise, diced celery, diced red onion, herbs, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper to a mixing bowl. Stir together until well combined.
  • Slice the avocados in half and remove the seed. Dollop a few spoonfuls of tuna salad onto each avocado half.

Lisa's Tips

  • You can definitely meal prep the tuna salad (will keep for 3-4 days in the fridge) and just slice the avocados daily as needed for lunch.
  • If serving these for a crowd, squirt fresh lemon juice on the avocado halves and rub it in. This will help to prevent discoloration and browning of the avocado.
  • I made this recipe as part of my What I Eat in a Day video. Watch that video for more healthy recipes ideas. And I’ve got tons more Whole30 recipes, a Whole30 Food List (shopping list) and Whole30 Snacks as well.

  1. This is delicious. I don’t know how I never thought of this combo before, but it’s perfect! I just stumbled onto your site and I love it! I made hummus for the first time last night in my Vitamix with sesame seeds I thought I would never find a use for. Thank you for making my kitchen a happier place!
