Mayonnaise and tuna fish have gone together for years. However, for someone who is sensitive to eggs, or just wants a change, here is a great substitute for mayonnaise in your tuna fish! Just use avocado. I call it a "tunacado"! Delicious and nutritious. The avocado supplies you with healthy oils and fats, the tuna provides the protein.
Ingredients for one:
• 1 cans of flaked light tuna
• 1/2 ripe avocado
• 1/4 cup chopped celery
• 1/4 cup chopped red onion
• 1/8 cup chopped, toasted walnuts
• 1/2 tsp dijon mustard, optional
• 1/4 tsp cumin, optional
• salt and pepper, to taste. I like to add jalapeno pepper
1. In a large bowl, mash up avocado with the back of
a fork or potato masher.
2. Add in tuna, celery, red onion and walnuts. Mix well.
3. Add in dijon, cumin and salt and pepper. Mix well.
4. Serve on bread, top on salad or eat plain.
5. Will keep up to 1 week in refrigerator.
