If you don’t have avocados on hand, you can serve this delicious tuna salad in leaf bowls, in a hollowed-out tomato, on toast, or even in grooves of celery sticks. You could, of course, go old school and serve it on toast…. do you have any idea how delicious StarKist tuna salad on toast sounds right about now??
The recipe below is out of this world – since I’m deathly (literally, it seems) allergic to mangoes, I leave them out. I replace them with chopped green grapes. For whatever reasons, grapes and tuna fish make the perfect pair. Then again, as far as I know, mangoes and tuna fish do too – you’ll have to try and let me know!
