Here are the things I love most about this recipe:
It can be made in 10 minutes from start to finish.
Tuna avocado salad wraps don’t require any cooking and can really be made in 10 minutes flat! Just open a can and chop the veggies, mix it up and you are done. OK, if you are not as fast in chopping it might take you 20 minutes instead of 10 – still makes it an awesome speedy lunch or dinner!
It uses all natural ingredients and doesn’t include mayo.
Tuna salad without mayo? Yes, this is it! In this recipe, avocado acts as a dressing in a tuna salad, effectively replacing mayonnaise! Mashed avocado has the right texture for this task – it’s just as smooth and thick as mayo. Plus avocado has the right flavor as well to go with the tuna – just think of the tuna avocado sushi rolls :) Avocado and tuna is the perfect combination – who needs the mayo after all!
When it comes to healthy ingredients, avocado definitely wins against mayo. Avocado is all natural, while the canned mayo ingredients are like a chemical lab. Avocado has the healthy fats and lots of vitamins and antioxidants, while mayo has a high amount of saturated “bad” fat and virtually no nutrition.
