No mayo here! This tuna salad is made with avocado, fresh veggies and balsamic vinaigrette for a creamy and tangy tuna salad

Tuna salad can have a bad wrap, but that’s mainly due to the traditional ingredients used. By swapped mayonnaise for avocado, we get a boost of good-for-you monounsaturated fats that contribute to heart health.

Nutrition Tip: Adding veggies to sandwiches increases the nutrient content of your meal [think Vitamin A and C] and can also that satisfying crunch and color.

This recipe also has a great crunch factor with carrots, green onions and walnuts. Perfect for a sandwich, wrap or topping off your salad.
