No Mayo Avocado Tuna Melt is the perfect lunch to get out of the midweek slump! Filled with solid white albacore tuna and veggies, it’s delicious and easy!
Now that the weather is getting nicer, I often enjoy cooking up a tuna melt, but I dislike the feeling of the heavy mayo-full tuna. This is why I have been opting for these delicious No Mayo Avocado Tuna Melts lately! They are full of fresh vegetables, melted cheese, and Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna. Bumble Bee® is sponsoring this post today, but as usual, all opinions are my own.
I really like using Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore in these No Mayo Avocado Tuna Melts because there is just a big difference in the consistency of albacore tuna compared to chunk light tuna. It has a firm texture, but comes together effortlessly using avocado as a binder. It has a nice light color and super fresh taste; paired with avocado and fresh veggies, Avocado Tuna Melts are really the perfectly balanced meal with lean protein, healthy fats, and important vitamins and minerals.
Get all your ingredients together, and start to whip up the solid white albacore and avocado mixture. It’s simple: add the tuna and 1/2 an avocado to a bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper. Then just mix it until it’s all combined.
Grab your bread and load it up with cheese, the tuna mixture, tomatoes, lettuce, and some more cheese! Butter those breads and pop it into a skillet. After just a few minutes you have the perfect Avocado Tuna Melt! A few other things I really like aboutBumble Bee® Solid White Albacore, is that it’s Non GMO Project Verified, Wild-Caught, and made with sea salt!

Make your sandwiches: Place a slice of bread on the bottom and then layer cheese, tuna mixture, tomatoes, lettuce, and another slice of cheese. Top with remaining bread slices. Spread butter on outside slices of bread.
Using a large skillet heated over medium heat; add sandwiches (butter side down), and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until bread is lightly browned. Flip and cook for 2-3 minutes or until bread is browned (usually the 2nd side takes a shorter amount of time to cook).
Remove from skillet and let rest for 2-3 minutes. Using a serrated knife, slice the sandwiches down the middle and serve immediately.
