Perfect dish for a warm weather lunch as it's light and flavorful. The avocado adds a different twist to the usual tuna/pasta salad.

I LOVE tuna pasta, but would have never thought to add avocado. Now, I can eat it without it!

I added a couple tbs of caesar dressing, sun dried tomatoes, and smoked paprika for a lot more flavor!
