Avocado Tuna Salad

"A healthy tuna salad that you can serve as a side dish or even eat for breakfast or lunch. It comes together quickly and is loaded with heart-healthy fats and filling protein (9g per serving). And at only 2.2g net carbs per serving, you can enjoy this keto-friendly tuna salad guilt-free.Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), which are protective against cardiovascular disease. Tuna is rich in a type of omega-3 fatty acid called DHA, which also keeps your blood vessels healthy but also your brain. "

NotesThis recipe yields only two servings, but you can double or triple the ingredients if you plant to make it for a whole crowd. But whatever you do, make sure to serve this salad fresh since avocados tend to brown soon after opening. Lemon juice helps slow down oxidation in avocados, but it definitely doesn't stop it.
