Paleo, Egg Free, Tuna Salad

My husband has a food sensitivity to eggs, so eating certain things are off limits, like mayo.  Usually if we ever do have tuna I just mix it with homemade salad dressing, but that can get boring.  I saw this from Nom Nom Paleo and thought “What a wonderful idea”.  

This is my spin on Tuna Avocado Salad


  • can of tuna drained – I use skipjack tuna 
  • 1 small ripe avocado
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 scallion sliced
  • juice of 1/4 lime
  • salt & pepper
  • handful of cilantro chopped
  • whatever salad fixings you want – I used baby kale, spinach, tomatoes, cabbage mix, homemade pickles, and homemade balsamic vinegar/macadamia nut dressing


  • Mash avocado with fork
  • Add in tuna, celery, carrots, scallions, lime juice, cilantro, and salt & pepper to taste
  • Mix everything together
  • Place on top of salad mixings
  • Enjoy!
