Buffalo Tuna Salad on Toast or in Avocado Boats

Last updated: May 2022

Most Americans don’t get enough omega-3's in their diet, which is essential for brain and heart health. They also help to lower anxiety and depression risk. Eating canned tuna can be convenient and healthy but ordinary. This recipe adds a bit of flavor and flair to an everyday dish.

If you’re following a Low FODMAP diet, then you’ll want to stick to one-quarter of avocado and serve this on toast. However, if you tolerate avocados, their creamy texture complements the tuna and creates a tasty and satisfying dish!
