It’s time to take your tuna sandwich to the next level with Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna. Swap out mayo for creamy avocado and you get a healthier take on traditional tuna salad, a perfect meal at any time of day!
As a kid, tuna sandwiches were one of my absolute favorite lunches. I loved how easy it was to make all by myself — simply opening the can of Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna, mixing it with a little mayo, and spreading it between two slices of perfectly toasted bread. Sometimes I’d even add a few potato chips for added texture and crunch. I’ve always been a fan of Bumble Bee® tuna — the moment you open that can, you can see the quality of the brand. Firm texture, light color, fresh taste, and full of lean protein, healthy fat, and important vitamins and minerals. (Check out their website for full nutritional facts).
But over the years I’ve come to like mayonnaise less and less and always look for ways to substitute it in any recipe. Greek yogurt is usually my swap of choice, but today we’re using avocado! You don’t need mayo to make a delicious tuna recipe — this tuna salad is still just as creamy and yummy as any other tuna salad recipe you’ve tasted. Well, no, that’s a lie. It’s creamier and yummier than any other tuna salad you’ve tasted!
Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna is a great base for the mix of velvety smooth avocado, crunchy celery, parsley, and dill and it all tastes absolutely delicious mixed together, scooped on top of a slice of toasted sprouted grain bread, and topped with sliced cherry tomatoes. Breakfast, lunch, dinner — or even just a mid-afternoon snack, this Avocado Tuna Salad Toast has become one of my new favorite easy-to-make-at-home-when-you’re-in-a-pinch-and-want-something-that-tastes-good-but-is-also-good-for-you recipe.
