You’ll only need a few simple ingredients to make this tasty lunch (exact measurements are included in the recipe card below):

If you don’t have fresh parsley or cilantro you can use dried herbs instead – try 1/2 teaspoon. Same goes for garlic – garlic powder is fine.

Why I use avocado oil mayoI use avocado oil mayonnaise (Sir Kensington’s brand, available at Whole Foods and Walmart, is wonderful) in this recipe.
I believe that avocado oil is a healthier choice than refined, bleached, and deodorized oils (RBD oils). Most commercial mayonnaise products are made with soybean oil, so I try to avoid them.
Since I use water-packed tuna
in this healthy tuna salad recipe, I add quite a bit of mayo – 3 tablespoons. Otherwise, it’s too dry.
But oil-packed tuna
is usually packed in – you guessed it – soybean oil. So it’s best to use water-packed tuna.
In the past, before avocado oil mayonnaise became readily available, I used sour cream instead of mayonnaise. That was delicious too.
