We are mid-way through January friends, which means any of you who started Whole30 on January 1 are already more than halfway done! Amazing!

As you know, I am personally not doing Whole30 but I absolutely love creating the most delicious and simple Whole30 approved recipes for really anyone to enjoy. The thing about Whole30 is that it sounds so much more intimidating and crazier than it is. We should be fueling our bodies with whole and real ingredients for more than 30 days. Of course there is no reason to be strict and eliminate foods like pancakes, pizza, etc. for forever, but it is great to get many of our meals in with all nutritious and wholesome foods.

This tuna salad is prepared with just a few ingredients and is served in AVOCADOS! Since bread is a no go on Whole30, we look to our good old friend, avocados, to hold the best dang tuna salad.

You can add scoops of the tuna into the avocado and eat it right out of the avocado! Or you can add it to a bed of greens and if you’re not on Whole30, add it to your favorite toast or tortillas!

To make the tuna salad you’ll need just a few ingredients and it will be ready in less than 5 minutes. Talk about an easy meal to prep. Jord and I make tuna salad for lunch a couple days a week. Especially when we are in a bind and need something fast.

What better way to eat tuna salad than making it Whole30 approved and made with just a handful of ingredients.

What ingredients are in my favorite tuna salad:

  • Wild tuna
  • Mayo 
  • Dijon or spicy mustard
  • Onion
  • Carrot
  • Celery
  • Back pepper
  • Dill to taste
  • Avocados

How to best serve this tuna salad recipe:

  • If you want a low carb/whole30 option – serving it in the avocados is such a good idea. It adds more healthy fats to your meal and serves as a mini bowl of sorts
  • I personally love eating tuna salad on a toasted piece of sourdough, a bagel or english muffin.
  • You can also serve it over a bed of greens in a salad and with some crackers on the side for crunch.
