Tuna has always been a go-to for my family when we’re looking for something healthy and delicious. So when I discovered StarKist Selects E.V.O.O., packed in cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, I knew it was something we’d love!

StarKist Selects E.V.O.O. comes in pouches featuring wild caught Yellowfin Tuna with Sun-dried Tomato, Yellowfin Tuna and Pink Salmon. As I understand it, tuna packed in extra virgin olive oil is very common in other countries, so, wanting to see what all the fuss is about, I used StarKist Selects E.V.O.O. Yellowfin Tuna to create an easy Avocado Tuna Salad!

Served in an avocado half, this light meal is clean, healthy and perfect for lunch or a simple dinner. Serve over fresh arugula or spring mix!

The extra virgin olive oil in StarKist Selects E.V.O.O. gives the tuna a rich flavor and tender texture. As I mentioned, tuna in olive oil is very common in many parts of the world, and I’m so glad and it’s finally becoming more mainstream in America, as well!

I used common Mediterranean ingredients to make this tuna salad, but the recipe is completely customizable. Create a traditional tuna salad if that’s your go-to, or make up your own tuna recipe using your favorite ingredients (white beans, eggs, chickpeas, bell peppers, fresh peas…anything goes)!

This recipe was amazing! I’d definitely eat it year-round, but it’s the perfect choice for a summer brunch or light lunch!

I love the mellow flavor of StarKist Selects E.V.O.O., due mostly to the addition of extra virgin olive oil.

I can see myself subbing in tuna in extra virgin olive oil for all my tuna recipes. I also love that the labels are easy to read, with only a few simple, quality ingredients.
