Ingredients

  • 14 ounces canned tuna drained
  • 1/2 small red onion diced small
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 1/4 cup pickles diced
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise (I used light)
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • In a large bowl combine the tuna, red onion, and celery.
  • In a small bowl smash the avocado. Then whisk in mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Taste and add more salt and pepper to taste being careful to start out with just a little.
  • Stir the dressing into the main ingredients.
  • Serve right away or store in an airtight container for 3 to 5 days. Please note that if this salad sits out for more than 2 hours, the leftovers should be thrown away.
