This recipe is perfect for on the go or if you need a quick and easy meal idea. It just takes 5-10 minutes to prepare. This meal is very high in protein and healthy fats which will help keep you full for a long time.

I also explain how I make this salad into a tuna melt below the tuna salad recipe. It is so good!

A couple things I like about tuna is that it is so versatile in what you can make with it, it also has so many health benefits from it. Tuna is very high in omega-3 fatty acids which has been shown to help decrease cardiovascular disease and heart attacks.

Ingredients:

1 can or packet of tuna

1/4 avocado

1/2 Tbsp Mayo

1 celery stick diced

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp parsley

1/8 tsp pepper

1/8 tsp or pinch of salt

(optional) 1/4 cup diced bell peppers


Directions:

  1. Add tuna to a medium size bowl.

  2. Add avocado to the bowl and smash it into the tuna until smooth.

  3. Dice celery and add to the bowl.

  4. Add remaining ingredients and stir well.

  5. Enjoy on bread, on lettuce, or plain.


Ingredients for Tuna Melt:

Tuna salad mix (ingredients above)

2 slices of bread or english muffin

1 tsp oil or butter

1/4 cup shredded cheese


Directions for Tuna Melt:

  1. Oil a frying pan with olive oil, avocado oil, or butter and heat over medium-low heat.

  2. Toast 2 slices of bread or 1 english muffin.

  3. Add shredded cheese to each of the bread slices right away so it can start melting.

  4. Add tuna salad mix on top of the cheese and fold into a sandwich.

  5. Place on heated pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side or until the toast is crispy and golden.

  6. Enjoy!
