Healthy avocado tuna salad that is completely mayo free! It’s made with creamy avocado and fresh lime juice. So creamy, fresh, and healthy.



  • 2 (5-6oz) cans of solid white albacore tuna in water, drained (I used American Tuna brand)
  • 1 1/22 avocados
  • 1/2 cup diced cucumber
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped red onion
  • 1/3 cup fresh chopped cilantro, packed
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt (or garlic powder)
  • 1/2 lime, juiced (or more if desired)
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper

To serve

  • baby romaine leaves
  • sandwich bread
  • crackers


  1. In a medium bowl, flake the drained tuna with a fork. Add avocado to the tuna and mash with a fork, breaking up any large chunks. It should be creamy with some tuna chunks.
  2. Add cucumber, red onion, cilantro, green onion and garlic salt. Stir together and add lime juice, mixing to combine. Season with salt and fresh black pepper, to taste.
  3. Chill 20-30 minutes and serve.
