Avocado Tuna Salad

Sonya impulse-bought some avocados yesterday, which would normally mean that exciting avocado-times are ahead. But we’re planning on leaving town tomorrow morning, so those innocent-looking avocados spelled stress, worry and angst for the Wadsgreens.

I decided to try to make avocado tuna salad on the theory that if avocados are nature’s cheese, then they may very well also be nature’s mayonaise. I’ve judged the result to be tasty enough to warrant remembering, and therefore blogging, so here’s the recipe I created:

  • 1/2 of a ripe avocado
  • 1 can of albacore tuna
  • 1 green onion, chopped fine
  • 1 liberal squirt of sriracha

Mix everything together and put it on some bread. The avocado should be sufficiently ripe that you can easily squish it up with the tuna.

It’s entirely possible that regular tuna salad with slices of avocado on it is even better, but I can’t help squishing things together when given the opportunity. Your mileage may vary.
