Saladmenu Tuna Salad With Avocado Dressing

My husband and I came back from Toronto recently, which is where we met ten years ago. It was a great trip, and we got lucky with beautiful fall weather – no rain! In December, we will be celebrating our ten year wedding anniversary! Do you ever feel like when you are on vacation you forget to eat healthy? That usually happens to me, and when I come home, the only thing I want to eat is veggies, and this is how this tuna salad recipe was born: I needed something quick, light and healthy to get me back on track and energized for my daily life. I loved this avocado dressing, at first wasn’t sure where to add the avocado, but on my third attempt, this was the best way. Avocado dressing is creamy and has a slightly sweet taste to it.

Tuna has some good benefits. It provides your body with essential omega-3 fatty acids, selenium (vital for metabolism and thyroid function), and proteins. Avocado, a very nutritious fruit, provide you with your daily serving of vitamin K and potassium while green onions fill you up with fiber and folic acid.
