Stuffed Avocados

I love tuna salad but we do not eat a whole lot of canned tuna, hoping to avoid exposing my family to loads of unnecessary mercury.  A great substitute for canned tuna is of course wild caught canned salmon –  but I still love tuna salad….  So I did a little research and guess what – good ol’ Trader Joe’s carries canned tuna that happens to be at the very BOTTOM of the list of mercury found in tuna.  So today I stuffed some avocados with a yummy paleo tuna salad for a change from our usual canned salmon.  

Stuffed Avocados

3 -4 ripe avocados

4 cans of Trader Joe’s tuna packed in water

3 green onions

3 celery stalks

1 palm full of dried dill

1 tbsp garlic powder

fresh ground black pepper to taste

grape tomatoes halved

about 1 cup of Olive Oil Mayo- 1egg, 1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, pinch of sea salt, few shakes of cayenne pepper, 1 tsp yellow mustard, 1 cup olive oil

Cut avocados in half lengthwise and remove the stone – leave the peel on.  In a large mixing bowl mix together the tuna, celery,  onions, and spices. In a food processor process for 5 seconds the egg, vinegar, mustard, cayenne pepper, and sea salt.  For another 5 seconds of blending slowly add the olive oil until it makes mayo. 

Add the mayo mixture to the tuna, mix well, and scoop onto halved avocados and top with tomatoes.

Enjoy!
