Very simple, flavorful, and tasty, this Avocado Tuna Salad requires just a few ingredients and 10 minutes of your time.
Bright, fresh ingredients come together to create this delicious Avocado Tuna Salad. The crunchy onions, succulent tomatoes, creamy avocado, tuna, and generous bunch of cilantro make this salad a great lunch or snack. Not a fan of cilantro? No problem! Just substitute it with fresh parsley.
I absolutely love how all of the ingredients work together in this salad. I used tomato medley, just to give some extra flavors and colors, but cherry or regular tomatoes will work great as well. When shopping for avocados, try getting the ones that are just about to turn ripe; this way, the cut pieces will hold their shape better.

It’s very tasty, too!
