Clean Eating Tuna Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing

I love my dog. I love my dog. I'm just going to keep telling myself that over and over. 

Yes. That was a Tom. 
B and I ran to get a Red Box after dinner last night and just jumped in the car quickly, not thinking about doing our usual close every door in the house routine. We travelled the whole quarter of a mile to the Red Box and came right back home, and in those 9 minutes my dear friend Charley snuck in to our closet and found my poor Tom. 
I love my dog. 

One good thing about my night was that dinner I mentioned was a good one! I threw together a salad with a dressing in this months Oxygen Magazine and we had dinner in less than 15 minutes. 

For the salad I mixed low sodium tuna in water with greek yogurt and pepper, and also added tomato and turkey bacon bits. It was so easy and you can easily play around with it by adding whatever veggies you like best. I didn't follow the original dressing recipe to a T, so here were my modifications:

2 ripe avocado
1/4 cup EVOO
1/2 cucumber
1 T minced garlic
Pepper and salt to taste 

Toss all that in your food processor and you get a great creamy dressing without the cream, or a great alternative to mayo in a sandwich or wrap. I was sure to use it sparingly since it is a little high in fat, but they are the healthiest of fats, of course! 


  1. I had a dog chew up a pair of Burberry heels once. It was an awful awful day. I've never owned shoes anywhere near that expensive. It's like she could smell the Italian leather

  2. oh yum. tuna is one of my favorites.

  3. That dressing looks and sounds amazing!! Definitely will try that out. Even as a spread on a sandwich. Yum yum! How long do you think it will last, since its made of the ever-browning avocado we love to hate?

  4. Looks yummy. I make a salad dressing like that with just avacado, lemon juice, basil or cilantro and water. Super yummy and refreshing. Sorry for your shoe. :(
