Let me preface this by saying, I used to think I hated tuna. Especially canned tuna. Till I realized, it don’t need no stinkin mayo! Tuna salad always grossed me out, the texture was just horrible to me. Then I discovered this mayo-less tuna salad and let me tell you I was converted instantly! This recipe is also perfect for people with egg intolerances, and you know we here at Sweet Betty’s are all about accommodating food issues.
1 4oz can of tuna, packed in water
¼ avocado, mashed
¼ tsp garlic powder
½ tbsp lemon juice
4 dashes Tabasco sauce
2-3 diced baby pickles (my preference is kosher dill)
Mix everything together and serve! It is that simple! I like to serve this with celery (for dipping) to make a gluten-free meal too. But it also goes great on a sandwich.
I used the baby pickles for the texture, larger pickles don’t give the same crunch and make this end up too mushy. If you are not a fan of spice, you can leave out the Tabasco and just add an extra dash of lemon.
Love and lunch,
