Autumn Tuna Salad

Autumn Tuna Salad

 

I am consuming endless amounts of fall foods. I cannot get enough apples, pumpkin, squash, and EVERYTHING else fall related! Anyone else with me??

This recipe is actually a lot less fall-y than most of the other foods I’ve been making and eating. I don’t eat much seafood anymore, but I was craving tuna salad. And I sure am glad I made it!

Autumn Tuna Salad Salad

Most chicken salad and tuna salad are high in saturated fat (bad fat) from the mayonnaise that is typically used. To get the creaminess without the unsaturated fat, I used mashed avocado and Veganaise, a vegan mayonnaise substitute made from soybean oil.
