  • 9 oz canned tuna packed in water, drained (I used 3 3-oz cans)
  • 3 ripe avocados, diced (peeled and pitted)
  • 1/4 cup finely sliced red onions
  • 1/2 cup Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • A few squeezes of fresh lemon juice to taste (I used about 1/2 of a large lemon)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large bowl, combine the drained tuna, diced avocados, sliced red onions, and chopped parsley.
  • Toss with olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste, salt, and pepper. Adjust seasonings if needed. Serve immediately.


  • Ideas for serving: On lettuce cups, mixed greens, bread, toast, saltine crackers, cucumber slices, or as is.
  • Storing this salad: If needed, store in an airtight container for up to 1 day. However, avocado turns brown quickly, although the lemon juice may help a bit.
  • Make-ahead: In a container, combine the tuna, parsley, and onions. Store in the fridge for up to 1 day. When ready to serve, add the diced avocados, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
