If I could eat a tuna salad every single day I would. It's my idea of a perfect lunch. It's delicious, easy and super healthy, especially when you add a variety of your favorite veggies. According to all of the experts however, I should only eat it once or twice a week at most. For kids, even less and that's chunk 'light' tuna. There are two main kinds of canned tuna: Canned light (chunk light) and canned albacore tuna (solid/chunk white). Stick to the light variety if your a tuna addict like me or if your serving it to the kiddos.
My favorite way to serve tuna is this chopped tuna salad. I throw different things into it depending on what I have on hand. Instead of the usual mayo (my ick factor) I whisk together stone ground mustard, a bit of plain yogurt and a teensie bit of Miso paste if I have any on hand. Trust me. Would I lie to you?
Here are a few excellent tuna side kicks:
- Green or Kalmata Olives
- Green or Red onions
- Sprouts (essential in my opinion)
- Stone Ground Mustard
- Miso (yup, miso. excellent aid in digestion too)
- Freshly Cracked Pepper
- Celery Seed
- Lemon juice
What I can't stand in tuna? Most peoples fav's, Mayo and Pickles. I'm an odd one, I already warned you about that.
What I have to have with my totally loaded, chopped tuna salad?
Ginger Peach Iced Tea from Republic of China. So perfect it was just ment to be.
