  • 10 oz tuna in water
  • 2 small avocados, ripe
  • 1/4 c chopped red onion
  • 2 T Ranch dressing
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 c chopped cilantro (I use a heaping 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Dash of garlic powder (optional)


  • Remove seeds and scoop avocado into a medium bowl and mash.
  • Add in ranch, onion, cilantro, lemon juice and spices and mix well. If you prefer a touch more of garlic (depends on how strong the garlic tastes in your ranch dressing) add that as well.
  • Chill for about 15 minutes before serving.
  • Store in refrigerator in airtight container for 1-2 days. To keep the avocado from browning, put plastic wrap over the tuna and press it into the tuna and then add the lid on your container.
