2 minute tuna avocado salad

As a mom of two littles, I can definitely say that lunch time is the most challenging meal to get on the table.  Usually we’ve spent the morning away at activities and will arrive back home when everyone is hungry and getting tired for naps.  I rely heavily on leftovers because they are quick to prepare for us – the biggest plus in my book.  But when leftovers are lacking my go-to is canned fish.  We love all different kinds – tuna, salmon and sardines – and I’m always looking for new ways to enjoy it.  Tuna salad with mayo and pickles is a go to standard, but today I have a fresh take to share that uses avocado for creaminess instead of mayo.


I am exited to partner with Bumble Bee® today to share this quick 2 minute paleo friendly tuna avocado salad, where I used Bumble Bee Solid White Albacore in Water as the main ingredient.  Bumble Bee offers responsibly wild caught Albacore that is delicious, versatile, high in protein and absolutely perfect as the main ingredient in any meal.  Try this mouth-watering recipe and discover for yourself why Only Bumble Bee Albacore Will Do™  *see their website for full nutritional facts


I will say, the first time we made the tuna salad it took more than 2 minutes, but that’s because the kiddos both helped me make it.  Having them help out in the kitchen makes the time even more fun, so the fact that it took about 10 minutes with them being involved was a-okay with me.

Hunter helped me mash the avocado and slice the cucumbers, and Zoe tried everything as we went along.  She is a great taste tester!  I’ll assure you though, an adult without distractions can get this from kitchen to table in 2 minutes flat!
