These Tuna Salad Stuffed Avocados are a delicious lunch or afternoon snack recipe. A simple combination of tuna salad and avocados, they are easy to make, and will keep you satiated for hours.
Avocado is a wonderful food that I always have on hand and add to sandwiches, salads, or pretty much any meal of the day. It’s smooth texture and mild flavor goes so well with everything.
The Old Bay Seasoning in this recipe packs a mild level heat. Think more a warmth heat than an actually spiciness. It’s perfectly to serve to nearly anyone, no matter their tolerance for spicy food.
This stuffed avocado with tuna salad is also a great recipe to eat when it’s too hot to cook.
