  • 2 avocados peeled and chopped into 1/2″ bite size pieces
  • 8-10  ounces of canned tuna drained
  • 1 tbs lime juice
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp or sprinkle of ground pepper
  • 1/4-1/3 cup of homemade mayo


  1. Break up tuna with a fork in a medium to large bowl.
  2. Add avocado and combine gently.
  3. In a small bowl combine lime juice, ginger, salt, pepper and mayo.  Stir to combine.
  4. Add dressing to tuna/avocado mixture.

I served this with some asian dressing cole slaw I had in the fridge.  This is definitely a mild tasting salad so use your own judgement on whether you would like a little more kick!
