We love this recipe because it substitutes an avocado in place of mayonnaise in this recipe. You can also try this recipe using your traditional recipe and replace the mayo with avocado.  Just like your own recipe, you can adjust the avocado just like you would adjust the mayo depending on how much you like mayo or avocado in your tuna salad.

Remember, you can customize and personalize your recipe to include any of these options: chopped red onion, chopped celery, chopped hardboiled egg (my favorite), pickles (my other favorite, chopped carrots, capers, mustard, or whatever you can think of.

You an also add this tuna salad on a mixed green salad, scoop with tortilla chips or simply eat with a fork.
