Tuna Fish Salad with Avocado
Our niece, Chelsea, doesn't like mayonnaise, but loves avocados, so we made this delicious salad for lunch while she was here to visit.
Tuna Fish Salad with Avocado (instead of Mayo)
1 can Yellowfin Tuna light (packed in water), drained
1 ripe avocado, mashed
squeeze of lemon and salt for the avocado
dried minced onions, about 1 T.
chopped sweet gherkins or other sweet relish, about 2 T.
salt and pepper, to taste
In a small bowl, mash fresh ripe avocado in to the texture of mayonnaise, leaving a few chunks if you like. Squeeze lemon over it and generously salt the smashed avocado mixture.
Add the minced onions and stir together. While the onions hydrate, chop up the sweet pickles. Drain the tuna fish well. Add the pickles and the tuna fish and mix together. Add salt and pepper to taste.
