These Avocado Tuna Salad Lettuce Wraps make for a great lunch when you’re trying to watch what you eat. If you’re really concerned about the use of mayonnaise in it, you can Google substitutes, too. I like the idea of using hummus instead.
My mom always made tuna salad when I was little with the mayo and sweet relish. I decided to change up her recipe and add the avocado like I did similar to these Avocado Tuna Salad Bites with just a little bit extra for flavor.
I’ve recently learned how to easily cut an avocado. I’m so excited!! I used to do it on a cutting board, but this way is SO much easier!
With a large sharp knife, cut lengthwise all around the avocado and then pull the two halves apart.
Hit the seed with the bottom of the knife so that it sticks into it. Slowly twist the knife to pull the seed out and discard.
Slice into one half of the avocado, making lines going lengthwise and down into the peel, being careful not to cut through (don’t want to lose a finger!). Next, make slices going the opposite way down to the peel/shell so that you’ve created cubes as you can see above.
Using a spoon, gently dig into the avocado, removing the cubes as you scoop.
Works like a charm if you ask me and there’s less mess on my cutting board and hands. Try it and let me know what you think!
While perusing tuna salad recipes, I came across some great ones. I found this Mediterranean Tuna Salad with Tarragon Vinaigrette. I’m loving all of the beans in it! This Tuna and Orzo Salad with Parmesan and Basil will be a great summertime dish. When the warm weather comes, I’ll definitely be looking for easy dinners where I won’t have to turn the oven on.
This Garden Veggie Tuna Mac Salad has lots of fresh veggies. I miss when we had our garden and could pick produce for dinner whenever we wanted it.
