This play on a traditional chicken or tuna salad is pretty quick and easy and relatively inexpensive as well! You can mix according to your taste, so you may need less or more of the ingredients. I do this:

  • 1 boiled egg (it’s especially quick if you have these boiled and kept in the fridge already)
  • 1 avacado
  • 1 packet of tuna or salmon (I find these at the grocery store for about a dollar or less each—depending on the store. You could buy it canned, but I like to buy the plastic bag packets you can rip open so that I can use them at work. I can get 2 servings out of 1 packet I buy for about a dollar and a half.)

Scoop out the meat of the avacado, use your fork or spoon to mash it up with the egg, mix in the fish, and add whatever seasonings you want (I use Tony Chachere’s for a yummy spice but you could do whatever you want).

You could do this without the fish to make it meat-free, or you could mix in anything else you think would taste good! Maybe some chopped celery or other veggies/fruits? I eat it with a fork, with crackers or toast, or veggies (carrots or peppers usually).

Based on your appetite, this could last 1-3 meals. I usually make 2 out of it; just pop the leftovers in the fridge and they’ll keep for a day or two. It’s versatile enough that you could do it for any of your meals, morning, afternoon, or evening!
