Classics.  Perfect anytime, anywhere, and never go out of style.  Here’s a healthy update to the classic tuna salad sandwich.  Bye bye mayo.  Hello avocado.  This version is full of protein and good fats, is heart healthy, and loaded with lots of flavour.

I’ve named this stunning sandwich ‘The Alessandra’, after my colleague who introduced me to this combination.  I watched her assemble this in the lunchroom one day and was fascinated by her tiny little containers and preparations.  She shared her sandwich secrets with me:

  1. Toast bread
  2. Mash avocado and canned tuna together in a bowl
  3. Spread hummus on both pieces of toast
  4. Add tuna avocado filling to bread
  5. Eat

She’s a clever one, that Alessandra.  Hope you and your taste buds enjoy this lovely sandwich inspired by a lovely gal.

    Never thought of mushing it together and using avocado instead of mayo … Definitely healthier… excited to try it. Thank you both.
