Tuna Salad Recipe

Tuna Salad Recipe

Tuna Salad loaded, with flaky canned tuna, creamy avocado, crisp green apples, and crunchy almonds – the combination of flavors and textures makes this completely irresistible!


  • 20 oz tuna in water (four, 5-oz cans), well drained.
  • 1 medium onion 1 1/3 cup finely diced
  • 1 medium granny smith apple seeded and diced
  • 1 avocado pitted, peeled and diced
  • 3/4 cup real mayo or added to taste
  • 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice or to taste
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds or chopped walnuts toasted
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper or to taste


  1. Toast nuts on a dry skillet until golden. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  2. To drain tuna, I open the lid then press it down firmly over the tuna to drain off as much water as I can squeeze out. If your tuna is too wet, your salad will be wet.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and add a pinch of black pepper and 1/2 tsp lemon juice, or to taste. Add mayo to taste.
