Can I add more veggies to this tuna avocado salad recipe?

You can absolutely add more vegetables to the mix if you want. I like it with the cucumbers because they're pretty mild. You could add in some tomatoes, bell peppers, or even some jalapenos if you like a little extra spice in your recipes!

I'll share a list below in the printable recipe card but if you want to check your fridge or pantry we will be using cucumbers, avocado, red onion, lemon juice, olive oil, canned tuna, and lemon pepper seasoning!

If you have lemon pepper tuna pouches on hand you could use those and skip the seasoning which is nice when you are in a hurry or if you just don't want to buy lemon pepper seasoning (or don't have any on hand).
