Some browning from the avocado is natural. Store this tightly sealed in refrigerator and stir before serving to reduce browning.

  • 2 4-oz cans no salt added tuna packed in water; drained
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil-based mayonnaise
  • 1 cup finely chopped celery
  • Optional Add-ins: (choose one to get full veggie serving)

  • chopped cucumber
  • chopped green or red pepper
  • chopped green onions or scallions
  • chopped spinach or kale
