Tuna Salad with Avocado, Cashews, and Dried Cranberries

Tuna Salad with Avocado, Cashews, and Dried Cranberries (Serves 2-3)

Mashed avocado is a good replacement for mayonnaise in tuna salad. Green tuna salad may look odd, but it tastes good. I made this twice in one week because I liked it so much.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

2 cans of tuna (mine was packed in olive oil)
1 avocado
1 lemon
1/2 small sweet yellow onion
1 handful of cashew or other nuts (optional)
1 handful of dried cranberries (infused with apple juice)
Ground black pepper
Red chili powder
Garlic powder
Salt

Directions:

Halve avocado, remove pit, and separate flesh from skin. Mash avocado flesh into a paste in a mixing bowl with a fork. Add the juice of one lemon. Drain cans of tuna and add tuna to mixing bowl. Finely chop onion and add to bowl. Add dried cranberries. Add a dusting of black pepper, red chili powder, garlic powder, and salt to taste. Mix ingredients. Taste and add more spices as needed. Serve over fresh lettuce (or other fresh vegetables). Scatter nuts on top. Enjoy!
