How To Make Spicy Stuffed Tuna Avocado
One of the things love about this recipe (in addition to the bright, fresh flavor) is how easy it is to make.
Just add the tuna, mayonnaise, celery, onion, herbs, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper to a small mixing bowl. Use a fork to break up the tuna and thoroughly mix all of the ingredients together.
Then use a large knife to cut your avocados in half and remove the seed. Add a few dollops of tuna salad onto each avocado half and that’s it – so easy. To eat the tuna stuffed avocados, just use a spoon or fork to scoop out a bite of the tuna salad with a chunk of avocado. It’s creamy, savory, herby, and slightly crunchy from the celery and onion. Totally delicious.
