Avocado-Tuna Salad – Avocado-Thunfisch-Salat

Posted on | April 25, 2013 | 4 Comments

Avocados and tuna are some of my favourite snack foods. When I saw this recipe for Avocado-Tuna Salad I thought it was brilliant to combine these two ingredients into a salad and then to serve it in the avocado shell. The salad is really tasty and healthy. It is quite filling and will keep you full for a while. It makes a perfect snack or light lunch or even dinner. 

Avocado-Tuna Salad


  • 1 avocado
  • 1 can tuna, drained
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped onion, or to taste
  • ½ – 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • fresh lemon juice, to taste
  • salt, pepper


Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. With a spoon, scoop out some of the pulp from the middle of each half. Leave a shell of about 1/4” of avocado flesh. Place the avocado flesh into a bowl and mash it with a fork. Add the tuna, onion, and the bell pepper.

Season to taste with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Place the salad into the avocado shells and serve.

Guten Appetit!

Recipe slightly adapted from Cook Eat Paleo



  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Dose Thunfisch, abtropfen lassen
  • 1 EL klein geschnittene Zwiebel, oder nach Geschmack
  • ½ – 1 rote Paprikaschote, klein geschnitten
  • frischen Zitronensaft, nach Geschmack
  • Salz, Pfeffer


Die Avocado halbieren und den Stein entfernen. Die Avocadohälften mit einem Löffel bis auf einen ca. 1 cm breiten Rand aushöhlen. Das Avocadofruchtfleisch in eine Schüssel geben und mit einer Gabel zerdrücken. Den Thunfisch, die Zwiebelstückchen sowie die Paprikastücke hinzufügen.

Mit Salz, Pfeffer und Zitronensaft abschmecken. Den Salat in die Avocadohälften geben und servieren.

Guten Appetit!
