When I found canned tuna in my pantry, I wasn’t really sure what to do. It’s one of those foods that just tastes salty and bland; there’s really not much to it, and it looks like cat food. So, I left it there until I decided to make myself a tuna salad, minus mayo.

I promise it doesn’t taste fishy at all. It’s more like an avocado salad that makes use of canned tuna sitting in your apartment and doesn’t even require a bowl.
