I was honored when Bella Portofino Tuna reached out to have me create a recipe using their delicious tuna. I knew I needed a special recipe, something that Mr. Fearless Dining and I could easily incorporate into our “healthy eating” New Year’s goals.

With all of the sweets around because of my blogging, we are making a promise to each other to eat healthier!

If you love tuna salad as much as we do, give this Rainbow Chard Tuna Salad recipe a try, too!

Bella Portofino is truly a high-quality tuna, and it shows in every bite you take.

  • Bella Portofino products are made up of wild-caught and hand-selected tuna, and extra virgin olive oil with a dash of sea salt for a smooth, mellow flavor and tender texture.
  • Bella Portofino uses only the best tuna and the highest quality E.V.O.O.
  • They are an excellent source of protein and a natural source of omega-3s.

Don’t just take my word for it; pick up a can and try it for yourself! This tuna salad with avocado is a great way to add healthy seafood to your diet!

Let’s get back to this tasty Tuna Avocado Salad. When you make this recipe, choose the best avocado for stuffing.

When I am in the store, I touch the avocados to find one that is slightly firm, yet a little soft to the touch. Remove the stem, and if there is a slight green under the dried stem, it is a good avocado!

If you need to ripen the avocado, place it into a paper bag for a few hours to a day!

You can see the quality of Bella Portofino’s Solid Yellow Fin Tuna in this shot. This recipe doesn’t need fancy bells and whistles. The tuna is the highlight and I chose flavors to showcase Bella Portofino’s tuna.

Bok Choy is a great choice if you don’t want the strong flavor of celery in your salad. Bok Choy adds Vitamins A and C to this dish!

    i’m loving the tuna avocado combo right now, but your way sounds a lot more interesting than the way I’ve been making it recently! I’ll have to give yours a try 🙂

    1. Thank you Nicola. We had lunch in Napa not too long ago and this one restaurant had avocado boats. I thought it would be a fun idea for this tuna 🙂
