"Simple, cheap, quick, and tasty! You can make it easily while traveling or camping. Good for backpacking or just a quick snack. This got me through many nights traveling in Guatemala and Mexico on a very limited budget. I still like to make it even with a full kitchen because it reminds me of camping at the Mayan ruins. The tuna with oil is preferable, and if the avocado is good quality and ripe, you might not even need any salt."

Great recipe! Wonderful flavor. I had it topped with cherry tomatoes. Next time I will add a crisp slice of bacon crumbled also.

I filled it with Barbies Tuna Salad found on this site. I think next time I will just use the tuna with oil. I like simple!

This is my new midnight snack! Sometimes I add a tad bit of mayo to the tuna though :D Also, sometimes I eat this with tortilla chips. But sometimes I just eat it as is. I really want to experim...

Actually, I first tried this at a Chilean Restaurant as a salad years ago and then just tried replicating at home ever since. I believe they mixed chopped onions and tomatoes into the tuna with ...

This is astonishingly good for something so simple. I can see where this makes an excellent backpacking food. Also, if you wanted to dress it up, the possibilities are endless.

I added some diced celery, diced onion, and lemon juice to the tuna. It was surprisingly really filling!

I was pretty suspect of this recipe. I thought tuna and avocado would be weird. It wasn't. It was absolutely delicious and so simple. I love tuna and am so happy to have found a recipe that does...

Added pepper and kale garden mix salad. I hallowed out the avocado then filled it. Loved every bite
