It was delicious.
See, I have a little bit of a thing for tuna. When I was little my mom used to hard boil eggs and make some delicious tuna salad. Then we would eat it on toast and it was sooooo good. Total comfort food. You know what I’m saying?
The problem here is that I don’t always have mayonnaise. I don’t really love it until it’s smeared on a BLT, minus the L and T. Or just lightly thrown into tuna or chicken salad… but that’s it. So yesterday when I was craving tuna? No mayo to be found. I love mustard but not enough to make tuna salad out of mustard entirely. And no, I will never eat tuna plain again. Had enough that when training for fitness competitions and the thought makes me want to hurl myself off a bridge.
I had avocado though! I sort of bought 9 avocados last week because they are so hit or miss here in Pittsburgh and I really wanted to make that frosting. I figured if I bought 9 at least half of them had to be okay.
So I mixed the tuna with about 1/3 of an avocado, cherry tomatoes, salt and pepper.
Then I mashed it all up and made it look ugly.
I also ended up adding some feta and then had it on toast. With chips. I actually loved it more than tuna made with mayo because it was thick and dense. I ate it again today.
And now I’m craving a peanut butter cup.
