Tuna Avocado Dip



I can imagine your faces are you ponder the title of this post. Tuna avocado...WHAT?! Yes...and it's really good. Not a strong tuna taste or aroma. Surprisingly, avocado is a nice substitute to mayo.

You can replace tuna with your prefer "meat" like chicken or some of the kind of seafood.


Tuna Avocado Dip

1 can tuna in oil
1 medium ripe avocado (pitted and lightly mashed)
1 Tbsp lemon juice
salt & pepper to season


Drain the tuna of most, but not all, of the oil. Mix all ingredients together.

Serve with slices of french bread or crackers. You can even spread this on a sandwich.

you know avocado as an emulsifier is used more and more....I love both tuna and avocado and I finally got some nice avocados...I think I see lunch developing...

KennyT said...

Both Tuna and Avocado are my favourite ingredients, will definitely give this dip a try, thank you very much for sharing, Jenn!!

Pam said...

You are so creative - I would never have thought to put tuna and avocado together. Great photo.

Sweta said...

Very unusual combo-love avocado and tuna,but would never have dreamt of combining the two :)

Reeni♥ said...

Love the two together. I have been craving avocado something bad today! This looks great!

~Dana said...

Looks delicious!

The Duo Dishes said...

Yes, that is an unusual combination. The mix sounds interesting for a nice buttery cracker. Might as well use a fat that's good for you instead of mayo.

teresa said...

I'm having this for lunch tomorrow, AWESOME idea!

McTatty said...

Oh - that looks really good to me! I don't like mayo, so this has to go on the to-make list for this summer. I'll definitely have to give it a try!

Justin Schwartz said...

I'm a tuna guy, so I'm curious about this.

Jen @ MyKitchenAddiction.com said...

Oh this looks fantastic! I love avocado and it sounds delicious with tuna. I think chicken would be great, too!

That sounds pretty good, really. I like tuna and avocado wraps, so this dip is not outside the realm of reality. Pretty pics!

Jenn said...

doggy: Really? I think it's great. why haven't I done this before.

Kenny: Thanks.

Pam: It just occured to me. Experimentation gone right, I guess.

Sweta: It's a odd duo, but sometimes odd things go well together.

Reeni: Why not try this? hehehe...=)

Dana: Thanks.

Duo Dishes: right? good fat vs. bad fat. Which would you choose.

Teresa: Enjoy!

McTatty: There you go. An alternative to mayo in a tuna salad.

Justin: I think You'll like it.

Jen: Chicken would definitely go great with this.

Kelly: I like both in wraps, too.

I love avocado...but I did make that "hmmmm" face when I read the title, LOL! Sounds delicious and I would definitely go for it! :P

Jenn said...

Debbie: It is a great combo.

Sophie, Diana: Thanks.

Chow and Chatter: Tuna and sweetcorn? That's new too me. It just so happens that I have some sweet corn in the cupboard.

girlichef: Got you to do the "hmmm" face. Sweet! lol.

Sapuche said...

That person whose face you were imagining as he or she read the title of your post was apparently mine! Wow, what a surprising combination. But as I think about it, it sounds really good, and not strange at all!

Jenn said...

sapuche: After it sinks in a bit, it doesn't become as weird sounding.

burpandslurp said...

green tuna, eh? that puts a whole different spin on boring old tuna salad! I'm not much of an avocado fan, but I imagine mixed with tuna, the blandness of avocado that I hate won't be there! I think I'm really going to try this combo sometime!

5 Star Foodie said...

Interesting combination - I love both so I'm definitely giving it a try! Thanks!

Jenn said...

burpandslurp: at least it's a change from the brown tuna color. lol

5 Star Foodie: Anytime!

Tangled Noodle said...

Yay! I just bought avocado today on a whim - didn't have any plans for it until now. 8-)

Jenn said...

Tangled Noodle: Nice!

Victoria K. said...
