Let's talk about tuna! In my experience, there are certain occasions in which a tuna salad sandwich is just the perfect meal -- picnics, and potlucks to name a few! Plus, having a quick and easy tuna salad recipe handy isn't a bad life skill to have. This is one of our favorite because it gets a little helping of veggies in the mix too! We are huge fans of avocado and cucumber here at RecipeLion, and this recipe has them both! For a little crunch, some smoothness, and awesome flavor throughout, this recipe takes your regular tuna salad from good to great with very little added effort!

Preparation Time10 min

CostInexpensive

Easy

Ingredients

  • 3 (5-ounce) cans tuna packed in olive oil, drained and flaked
  • 1 rib of celery, diced fine
  • 1 small shallot or ¼ red onion, diced small
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper
  • 3 cups baby arugula
  • 1 English cucumber, sliced or diced
  • 1 avocado, sliced or diced

Instructions

  1. What you'll need:

  2. After opening the tuna cans, drain most of the oil.

  3. Place the tuna into a medium bowl and flake the tuna.

  4. Cut up your celery, shallot or red onion, cucumber, avocado, and lemon. Wash and dry your arugula and place 2-3 cups it in a larger bowl. Set aside. 

  5. Add the celery, shallot or red onion and toss with the tuna.
     

  6. Sprinkle the lemon juice over the mixture then add a few pinches of salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.

  7. Grab the bowl of arugula you set aside. Top the arugula with the tuna mixture.
     

  8. Add the cucumber and avocado to the bowl around the side or on top. If you prefer, you can dice up the cucumber and avocado into smaller pieces and mix them into the tuna mixture then toss with the arugula so that everything is more combined. 
     

  9. Add additional lemon juice or salt and pepper if needed.
     

  10. Enjoy as is or use on sandwiches! Cover with tin foil or plastic wrap if not using immediately and refrigerate

I really enjoy tuna salad, but I've never made it myself. This recipe will serve as my inspiration to give it a try.

I love a tuna salad. I find it so refreshing yet substantially filling and appetizing. I typically add in a bit of vinegar to my tuna for sandwiches but if I'm making a salad I add 1 000 island dressing. I have never made a tuna salad with arugula and I do love it so I'm definitely going to try that one!

Tuna salad sounds so good right now. I like the addition of avocado and cucumber. I'll be shopping for these ingredients this weekend, so I can have tuna salad next week. I've never purchased tuna in olive oil before. Does it taste okay? I usually buy the tuna packed in water then add mayo to my tuna salad.

This is almost exactly how I make my tuna salad, and it's delicious! I've never tried it with cucumbers, though.
