Adding celery, tomato and onion to this tuna mixture boosts the crunchy appeal of this salad and sandwich filling and using avocado instead of mayo boosts the creamy, yummy texture while increasing the heart-healthy omega-3 content.

Serves 4


  • 2 cans water-packed tuna fish, drained
  • 1 avocado, mashed
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1⁄3 cup red onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, chopped
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper


  • In a bowl, combine all ingredients.
