The avocado gives this tuna salad recipe a healthy and highly satisfying creaminess without needing mayo. The lemon juice and cilantro give it incredible fresh flavor – this may just become your new favorite tuna salad.

P.S. Want to know a little secret? This salad is a close relative to the #1 recipe on my site of all time – that’s where the inspiration came from and it was an instant hit!

Ingredients for Avocado Tuna Salad:

This Avocado Tuna Salad has such simple ingredients and you may already have everything you need to make it (I love it when that happens!!).

What Kind of Tuna is Best for Tuna Salad?
We used drained Chunk Light Tuna in oil for more flavor and it seems to hold it’s form better, but you can substitute for well-drained tuna in water if you prefer.

Make-Ahead Tip: Once you add salt, the salad should be enjoyed within 3 hours of making, or the cucumbers start to lose their crispness. To prep the salad in advance, combine all of the ingredients except the salt, cover and refrigerate. Season with salt just before serving.
