Ingredients (for 2)

This recipe will yield to 2 avocado shells (1 shell per person).

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 can tuna (drained and flaked)
  • 2 stalks celery (finely diced)
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach (chopped)
  • 1 small garlic clove (minced)
  • 1 TBSP Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 tsp olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 1/2 lemon (juiced)
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce (optional)


1/ Cut your avocados in half and discard the pits. Scoop the avocado flesh out of each avocado half. Keep the shell, we will use it later. Place the avocado flesh you carved out in a large mixing bowl and mash with a fork.

2/ Add tuna, celery, baby spinach, cilantro, minced garlic, mustard, olive oil, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mix well.

3/ Use a spoon to pack the tuna salad back into the avocado halves. If you don't want to stuff your avocado shells too high, you can serve part of the mixture in a small bowl on the side with crackers.

4/ Drizzle with desired amount of tabasco if desired.

Bon appétit !
