1 Slice avocado in half. Remove the pit and scoop one half into a bowl. Mash it with a fork, then mix with olive oil, lemon, and Dijon mustard. Set aside. Cut the other half of the avocado into cubes.

2 Place the chopped onion, celery, cucumber, sunflower seeds, cubed avocado, tuna, and parsley or dill in a bowl.
