"Simple, cheap, quick, and tasty! You can make it easily while traveling or camping. Good for backpacking or just a quick snack. This got me through many nights traveling in Guatemala and Mexico on a very limited budget. I still like to make it even with a full kitchen because it reminds me of camping at the Mayan ruins. The tuna with oil is preferable, and if the avocado is good quality and ripe, you might not even need any salt."

This is my new midnight snack! Sometimes I add a tad bit of mayo to the tuna though :D Also, sometimes I eat this with tortilla chips. But sometimes I just eat it as is. I really want to experim...

I filled it with Barbies Tuna Salad found on this site. I think next time I will just use the tuna with oil. I like simple!

Great recipe! Wonderful flavor. I had it topped with cherry tomatoes. Next time I will add a crisp slice of bacon crumbled also.

This is astonishingly good for something so simple. I can see where this makes an excellent backpacking food. Also, if you wanted to dress it up, the possibilities are endless.

Just had this for lunch in a bowl, and looked up on allrecipes to see if there were recipes for it. Surprised this is the only one! So simple and good, and no extra salt needed. First ate som...

Actually, I first tried this at a Chilean Restaurant as a salad years ago and then just tried replicating at home ever since. I believe they mixed chopped onions and tomatoes into the tuna with ...

So good. I tweaked my raw avocado by going with white tuna in water, tsp of wasabi, a few shakes of black pepper and just a pinch of salt as originally written. Perfect.

For all the fish that got away on our camping trips, found this to be a great "substitute" for the fresh fish. My new love for avocado's and old love for tuna made for an easy meal when needed ...

delicious! I LOVE avocados. I guess I never thought of mixing tuna with avocado instead of mayo. I think this would be great topped with some cheese and tomato as well, pimento, etc. :)
