Great tuna avocado salad as a side dish or meal. Serve on toasted bread (gluten-free if needed), on top of greens, or enjoy it all by itself.

I made this yesterday and found it delicious. I used honeycrisp apples. Some prefer Granny Smith. The acid from the pickle juice added tartness, the cumin gave it some kick and the walnuts and celery gave it crunch. It's a keeper for me. Read More

Wow, this was really good! Definitely leave the peel on the apple, and don't even think about leaving out the walnuts! Don't need bread ... just eat it with a fork. Yum! Read More

Delish. Didn't have pickle juice and used a whole avacado. I spread Hummus on my bread, quick broil them mixture. Thanks for this! Read More

Loved the fresh flavors of this recipe! I did only use 1/4 cup of red onions in my mix. The cumin and avocado were a nice added touch of flavors! Read More

I made this for a party and it was gobbled up! I was worried the avocado or the apple would brown but they didn't. No changes to the recipe - it is just right! Read More

I made this tonight with a few minor changes. Used 1 large (12 oz) can tuna, whole small apple and juice of 1 lemon in place of pickle juice. I also used Miracle Whip rather than mayo (for extra sweetness). I chopped the avocado rather than mashing. Added all other ingredients exactly as written. My husband and I both enjoyed it. Served on lettuce leaves for a nice, light summer dinner with a glass of rosé. Read More
