Five-Minute Recipes: Avocado Tuna Salad • Southern RI Children's Photographer

Summer is almost here.  The weather's getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and you and your kids are spending more time outdoors, away from home, and on adventures.  Whether you're camping at Burlingame, spending time at South County's beaches, or marveling at how the rich people used to (and still do) live in Newport, summer in Rhode Island is great.

All that time outdoors and away from home doesn't leave a lot of time for making meals when you get home, but eating out isn't always an option, whether for price, nutritional, or other considerations.  Not to worry; today I'm going to share with you a quick, tasty variation on the traditional tuna salad that your whole family will love.  Whether you eat it in a sandwich, on some crackers, or accompanying a garden salad, this is a tasty summer treat that is easy to make and budget-friendly.  Trust me, I know:  I've been making this one A LOT after evening photo shoots all over South County!  It's also a nice flavor variation for those who don't care for regular tuna with mayo.

Ready for your quick and easy recipe?  Here it is!  Do you have any favorite summer recipes?  Let me know in the comments!

You will need one can of your favorite kind of tuna and an avocado (we'll be using half of it).

You'll also need a bowl, can opener, and a knife, fork, and spoon.

Optional items include spice or seasoning(s) of your choice and a little lemon or lime for some zesty flavor.

  1. First, open the can of tuna and drain.
  2. Cut the avocado in half; save half for later.  Scoop remaining half of avocado into bowl and mash up with the fork till it's nice and smooshy.  Yes, smooshy.
  3. Add tuna to bowl and combine with smooshy avocado until it is well-combined.  
  4. If you would like to add any spices or a splash of lemon or lime for some flavor, do so now to taste and mix well.
  5. Serve in sandwiches; on crackers; next to salad; or just eat this tastiness right out of the bowl!  YUM!
