  • 12 oz can white albacore tuna
  • 2 Tbsp avocado ripe, mashed, about ¼ of medium avocado
  • 1 Tbsp non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp lemon juice fresh-squeezed
  • 1/4 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dill dried
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp celery finely chopped, about ½ stalk
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Drain tuna, squeezing as much moisture out as possible then set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, add avocado. Mash until nearly lump-free—you should have approximately 2 Tbsp of mashed avocado.
  • Add yogurt, lemon juice, seasoned salt, garlic powder and dried dill. Mix until completely combined then add green onion, celery and drained tuna. Stir until combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Cover and chill until ready to serve. Enjoy!


Solid white albacore is a bit more expensive but retains much less liquid and works better overall. You can really taste the difference!
