Recipe

It's funny how something like a simple tuna salad can be so polarizing.  Literally the mention of it brings scowls, scrunched up noses, and eye rolling.  Personally, I blame this on people who decide to eat tuna in a small spaces with no ventilation, like an airplane or waiting room or an interview.  Yes, that really happened.  I used to do a lot of recruiting and interviewing for my previous job and one person casually brought his lunch to the interveiw, mentioning he had a busy day.  Understanding the need to eat, I decided to go with it, until he opened what had to be the smelliest tuna sandwich of all time, and proceeded to not only eat it, but spill it everywhere.  I thought I was being punked.  Needless to say, that interview didn't end well.  But anyway, back to tuna.  I happen to love it and am always looking for ways to step up my tuna sandwich game.  Lately my favorite way to do that is by switching out my mayo for creamy delicious avocado.  Then with some added crunch from celery, carrots, and red onion; we have a killer tuna salad.
