If you follow my Instagram stories, you know I had a massive craving for a tuna melt and white wine earlier this month. Yielding to the craving, one of my girlfriends and I gathered up all sorts of tuna melting ingredients, grabbed a bottle of sauvignon blanc, and created the most epic Tuna Melt Fest known to human kind.

Because the responses I got from my Instagram story were so sensational, I figured I would share my go-to avocado tuna salad recipe so that you, too, can have a marvelous tuna melt extravaganza.

I used to make a 3-Ingredient Mayo-Free Avocado Tuna Salad without mayonnaise altogether but I now add a small amount of avocado oil mayonnaise. I find this helps with the texture and creaminess, and it doesn’t take much!  In addition, I chop up some dill pickles (use the naturally fermented ones for added probiotic points), and add stone ground mustard for tang to balance out the creaminess.

So let’s do this!

Make a tuna sandwich or melt, eat it on top of a green salad, enjoy it on crackers, etc.

Tuna Melt Ideas:

For our tuna melts, we found havarti cheese with dill was an incredible choice. We also enjoyed aged white cheddar and regular cheddar. We used both gluten-free sliced bread and gluten-free rolls and determined we liked the sliced bread best.

On one of our rounds, we used canned salmon instead of tuna, which we both really enjoyed! The fish flavor is more subtle and there’s more natural creaminess to it. We also used sauerkraut and baby spinach in one of the tuna melts, which was fabulous.
