A Tuna Recipe for Fish Haters...Really!

Now before I share this most deliciously wonderful recipe let me tell you that I hate fish!

Hate it!  Hate the smell!  Hate the texture!
Don't even like to walk through that section of the grocery store. Period.

But tuna salad is a different story when it's all dolled up. I like it with lots of ingredients added and with good quality tuna.   Looks good, doesn't it?

Gather up your ingredients and let me tell you how easy this is. :)

Tuna and Rice Salad with Avocado Dressing

For the salad:
2 cups cooked rice
2 cans solid white albacore tuna
1 8 1/2 oz. can of green peas
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup diced celery
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Dash or two of hot sauce

Mix it all. Easy as can be.

For the dressing:
2 ripe avocados
1 cup mayo
1 cup sour cream
3 or 4 drops hot sauce
1/2 tsp Worcestershire
1/4 cup minced onion

Mix together in a blender or I use my Kitchen Aid with the paddle.

Slice up tomatoes and serve the salad with dressing on top.
Add a cracker or two for good measure.

This is just delicious served up nice and cold on a hot summer day.

I know there are lots of us out there who really don't like fish but will eat tuna salad or
an occasional Long John Silver's. 

How about you?

  1. I love tuna fish and this recipe sounds great and I will give it a try. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. It looks yummy and refreshing and it's gluten free, too! Thanks for sharing the recipe, Stacey.

  3. I'm not a big seafood eater either, Stacey and to be honest tuna is way down on the list LOL . The Hubster loves tuna though. I'll have to be a good wifey and make him a batch ;)

  4. I love fish! All kinds....salmon, grouper, shrimp, crab, lobster and tuna! Never had it with rice, but this sounds good!

  5. Stacey, I noticed that you "doctored up" the tuna with Avocados! :) I just love seafood. Hey, I live in New England & we get fresh seafood in our grocery stores just about every day. Haddock, Scallops & Swordfish are great in the summer.

  6. I think you and my youngest daughter would get along just great. She feels the same way about any kind of seafood. Your tuna looks delicious, I'll have to show her this post to see if she'll give your recipe a try. Have a lovely weekend... :)

  7. I'm with you, Stacey, I hate fish. This looks lovely, but nope. I just can't! ;) I like the dish though...a lot!

  8. There are only a few fish I like and I do love tuna---eat tuna salad for lunch at least once a week. The dressing sounds outstanding- I can imagine it on a lot of things!! Thanks. Will definitely try!! :)

  9. Yummo!
    Love the red shakers, dishes and napkins!!!!


  10. I only like very mild fish...so I'd eat shrimp scampi, or crablegs or lobster or orange roughy, maybe sole. That's it.

    Tuna...I put tuna in macaroni salad :) So I bet that I'd like something like this recipe of yours :)

  11. Oh wow! I feel exactly the same!!! Recipe looks delicious! We took a family vacation to Destin. My son in law is a marvelous cook and prepared fresh seafood every night. I politely suffered through. However on the last day, he made fish sandwiches. I couldn't eat one bite. I was done!!! I felt like a kid trying to fake eat my supper! Lol.

  12. I've pinned this! The hubster will love it!!

  13. I love tuna, but no one else in the house does….YAY!!! I'm trying this next week. I can't wait. The dressing sounds refreshing and delicious!!! Thanks for posting, Stacey. Pinning it now!


  14. Hi Stacey, this is a wonderful recipe. Perfect summer dish! Thanks for sharing. I will certainly be trying this one.
    Happy weekend, cm

  15. I'm totally with you on not being a fan of fish, but for some reason I'll eat tuna a couple of times a year. :) What I really can't stand is when people eat fish with the head still attached!!! So gross! Lol! This recipe sounds really good though and I could really see using that yummy dressing on lots of other stuff as well!

  16. I love tuna so I need to try this.

  17. I love tuna so I need to try this.

  18. Stacey, it looks delicious. I love fish and yes, we can still be friends. Ha.

    Have a super weekend.

    Barb :-)

  19. You are such a good cook Stacey!
    That sounds delicious.

    Thank you so much for coming by my blog. It means the world to me.

    I keep trying to get fired up about blogging- and I feel it in my heart- but life gets in the way.

    Have a great weekend,

  20. Perfect - thanks.
    As long as tuna is served cold it is a go to dish for us.

  21. Rice huh! Who would have thought. I like to eat fish, but, not great at cooking it right. So tuna for me it is and I have a farmer's market tomato!

  22. Hi there, thanks for visiting my NOEL letters - yes I Mod Podged them, and I've updated the post in case you're interested in details on where I got the paper and letters.


  23. I'm not a hard sell because I love fish but I have to say that this looks delicious.

  24. I've never had tuna with avocado, but I love both, so I'll give it a try :)

    I love all kinds of fish... broiled, fried, in tacos... love it!


  25. Thank you! This looks really good.
