Fish Less Tuna Salad

I use to eat Tuna Fish (White Albacore in Water) all the time and really enjoyed it. After reading about mercury issues increasing with Tuna and I honestly did not feel good after eating it, I thought I’d try to make my own healthier version.


  • 1.5 cups of Pumpkin Seeds – Soaked overnight (This is key!)

  • 2.5 tbsp of lemon juice – Fresh is better but use what you have

  • Dash of sea salt, to taste

  • Fresh black pepper, to taste

  • 1 stalk of organic celery

  • 1 organic tomato

  • 1 garlic clove, chopped up

  • 2 organic pickles or fresh dill would work if you don’t like pickles

  • 1/4 cup onions and/or scallions

  • 1/2 avocado


  1. After soaking the sunflower seeds overnight, rinse them well, then put in a food processor or a blender will also work. The seeds should have a chunky consistency similar to actual tuna.

  2. Scoop out the sunflower seeds into a bowl. Add the lemon juice, sea salt, black pepper, celery, tomato, garlic, pickles and onions.

  3. Mix the avocado thoroughly or you can mash it in so its creamy…enjoy!

Keep in mind, I love vegetables, so the more the better for me. You can personalize this any way and add less or change some of the ingredients.

I was actually surprised at how delicious this turned out and while I did notice a slight difference from real tuna, this is my new favorite thing! I loved it!

Have you made something similar? Did you try this? I would love to hear from you!
