Some Exciting Variations
Tomatoes: The sweetness of fresh tomatoes complements the simplicity of tuna salad nicely. To keep tuna salad from being watery, use smaller ones that aren’t too watery, or remove the watery insides first.
Eggs: Adding diced eggs to a healthy tuna salad with avocado can boost the creaminess.
Bacon: One of my all-time favorite ingredients. Make bacon in the oven to avoid getting splattered with oil. To make a treat, crumble the bacon and put it into the avocado tuna salad.
Cucumbers: I like to throw in this salad a few chopped cucumbers since they are so light and refreshing.
Seasonings: For an anti-inflammatory boost, try Italian spice, paprika, or even turmeric.
This Avocado Tuna salad should be eaten within 3 hours of adding the salt; otherwise, it may lose its freshness. To make the salad ahead of time, mix all of the ingredients except the salt in a mixing bowl, cover, and chill. Just before serving, season it with salt.
However, if you want it to keep fresh for a longer amount of time, lemon juice can be added. If you’re cooking it ahead of time, you may try adding a little more lime juice to assist reduce browning. However, it will only last a few days.
The avocado should be ripe and simple to mash with a fork because it is replacing mayonnaise. When gently squeezing an avocado, look for one that has some give.
Also, because mayonnaise is salty and avocados aren’t, you’ll need to season this salad with more salt and pepper than you may think.
How to Serve Avocado Tuna Salad?
Avocado tuna salad can be enjoyed in a variety of ways, all of which are delicious. Here are a few delectable suggestions:
- You can make bread at a 90-degree angle. This is the quickest method to make a low-carb tuna salad sandwich.
- It’s also a good idea to serve it with low-carb Paleo Tortilla Chips, which are ideal for dipping.
- Use low-carb cauliflower tortillas or paleo tortillas with tapioca flour for a paleo but not a low-carb alternative.
- Avocado tuna salad with simple Paleo Keto bread is a delicious combo. For a traditional avocado tuna sandwich, I like my go-to low-carb white bread recipe.
