Whole30 and Paleo Guacamole Tuna Salad

4 Jun

For as unique as this dish looks, it is so simple and easy to make!  I served mine on sweet potato slices which made it finger food.  A great meal or a party appetizer!

Whole30 guacamole tuna salad

Ingredients (2 servings):

6.4oz white tuna (I used a pouch)

2 Wholly Guacamole* mini packs (2oz each)

1 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard (Westbrae Naturals brand has no sugar)

1 rib of celery, thinly sliced

2 tsp. fresh chives, minced

1 1/2 tsp. fresh dill, minced

1/4 – 1/2 tsp. cumin

Pinch of salt

3 cracks fresh pepper

1 sweet potato, peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch rounds (I used a purple sweet potato)

Olive oil, salt, and pepper (for baking sweet potato)

Method:

Preheat oven to 375°F.  Toss your sweet potato rounds with olive oil, salt, and pepper to coat.  Spread rounds in a single layer on a baking sheet (I lined mine with nonstick foil – yes, that’s a thing now!).  Bake sweet potato at 375°F until fork tender, 20 minutes.  In a bowl mix together tuna, guacamole, dijon, celery, chives, dill, cumin, salt, and pepper.  When the potato is finished, scoop 1 1/2 tablespoons of tuna mixture onto each round.  Makes ~10 rounds.

*That’s right, this is Whole30 compliant!  Just Hass avocado, vinegar, jalapeño, onion, salt, and garlic.  No need to make from scratch.
