This looks so tasty! I love the fresh flavor that avocado gives to a dish. My girls really love avocado and tuna so I will have to give this one a try – would make a great weekend lunch when we are just lounging around the house.
YES please. I want to make this avocado tuna salad for my lunch tomorrow. I have everything you have listed so I think I will make it in the morning. Looks so good and fresh. Yummy!

I am normally not a big tuna salad fan because of the Miracle Whip or Mayo. I really like how fresh this is with the avocado and think this would be something I would like. I will be making this really soon.
I’m trying to eat healthier and sometimes I just get bored. This just sounds amazing!!! I love avocado anyway, but paired with tuna and zucchini chips? Yum!! This might just become my new favorite lunch!
Jennifer, I pinned this baby as soon as I read “zucchini chips!” Sounds so delicious, and looks great too. What a wonderful way to add more veg and fruit to your summer diet. I will definitely be making this soon.

What a great combo! I actually make both of these recipes often, but never together!! I usually dip the zucchini crisps into dip, but not a salad like this. These have all the flavours and foods I love!
This sounds awesome! I love avacado but I never would have though to mix it with Tuna?!! And I love adding the baked zucchini chips – like a little cheat but not really! Sounds like a perfect lunch or light summer dinner!

I have made zucchini into noodles before but not into chips. These look so delicious! And I love that you added avocado to your tuna. I would’ve never thought to do that. Can’t wait to try this!

Just made this for lunch…wow! It’s so fragrant and full of flavor. I love the crunch that the onion and cucumber provide along with the creaminess of the avocado. The tuna makes it perfectly filling. Awesome recipe!
