  • 10 oz. tuna , drained (two 5oz. cans)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (or more depending on how creamy you want it to be)
  • 1 celery stalk , diced
  • 2 Tablespoons diced red onion
  • 2 teaspoons mustard
  • 2 teaspoons minced parsley
  • salt to taste
  • fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce or Sriracha sauce (optional)
  • freshly squeezed lemon juice , to taste (optional)
  • 1 large avocado , cut into bite sized pieces (or more avocado if your heart desires!)


  • Drain excess water or oil from the tuna. Add tuna to bowl and gently break up the large chunks (if your tuna is packed in olive oil, you can use the olive oil instead of the mayo. It's a different taste with the olive oil, but the oil gives a similar fat and creaminess).
    Drain Tuna
  • Add mayonnaise, celery, red onion, mustard, parsley, salt, pepper and/or optional hot sauce, lemon juice.
    Stir and fold in the avocado. Smash the avocados to your desired texture. Make it more to make it smooth, or gently stir to keep it chunky!
