Paleo Avocado Tuna Salad

Tuna is always an easy and healthy choice for a Paleo-on-the-go snack or meal. The problem with tuna is the fact that I love mayo with it! I try to have Paleo Mayo ready for the week, but sometimes the Paleo mayo making does not happen. This “Tuna Salad” is what I try instead. I love the creamy avocado with the tuna.

Give it a whirl and let me know how you like it!
