The Best Tuna Salad Recipe

That’s what I googled to find this recipe!  I love, love, love it, and – even better – my two tuna haters like it, too!

tuna 1

4 cans of tuna, drained*
Mayonnaise
1 large, firm apple, peeled, cored and diced
1/2 small sweet onion, finely diced
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Mix all ingredients together with just enough mayo to hold it all together. Spread on good bread, and enjoy!

*I usually buy water-packed tuna. Oil-packed tastes better, but it’s packed in soy or canola, and I don’t feel either is a healthful option, so water-packed it is.

Also, make sure everything is cut pretty small, otherwise those chunks of apple fall out of your sandwich when you’re not looking! Also excellent stuffed into homemade pitas.

  1. Ooo thanks! I like tuna, but I like to mix it up a lot. I’ll have to think up something to sub for our nut allergies. I usually use crushed pumpkin seeds.

  2. You can leave the nuts out, if you want. It adds a bit more sweetness and crunch, but it’s perfectly fine without. I make it both ways, depending on my level of motivation. 🙂
