This is such an easy way to make your own tuna salad, and it calls for an easy clean up because there’s no plates needed! You just use an avocado as a natural bowl! This is a great lunch to make because it is a spin off of the traditional tuna salad sandwich, but it doesn’t include bread! So it is low in carbs, but high in protein and good fats! Take this lunch on-the-go on a picnic or quickly whip it up at home!
