Ok, so I've just finished my last mediocre tuna salad sandwich. I need help
I never measure but
a bunch of fresh dill
or instead of dill, a little chipoltle mustard
I also occassionally add a half a block of cream cheese... makes it really rich.
Serve on flatbread or a tortilla roll up
Quote:Do you use oil or water packed tuna, or doesn't it make a diference?
Thanks for the recipe.
Tuna (water packed)
finely chopped apple
1 egg per 1 can tuna chopped
Thats the way its alwayse been around here....toast the bread and add a slice or two of tomato..and whala!!
my best recipe and one that my kids love
water packed tuna
dill pickle juice
1 or 2 eggs boiled
i never measure
put tuna in a bowl
maybe 2 spoons of dill pickle juice
maybe 2 spoons of sweet relish
a heap of mayo
a heap of mustard
1 or 2 boiled eggs mashed with a fork
taste before you add salt and pepper cause the flavor off mustard makes a big difference
I normally go by texture i like it a lil runny so that the bread soaks up a lil of the juices
my recipe would make about 3 samwiches
I use water packed tuna to save calories
i use water packed tuna and i mix it with salsa and munch on it with crackers
1 large can of white tuna packed in water
1/2 a large onion diced
3 ribs of celery chopped
enough mayo to make wet
fresh ground black pepper
I also like to make tuna melts with this, just add tuna to your grilled cheese, really good.
We never do boring tuna in my house, I posted these awhile back try them out:
Katys Tuna Salad Recipes
Tuna is healthy and convenient, but in our house we quickly get tired of the Grandmas version of Tuna Salad with lots of mayo, boiled eggs, and pickle relish. We do like that, but it does get old. Wanting to serve my family tuna once a week for lunch (convenience, cost, health), I invented some really unique recipes that are grown-up in taste, but devoured by the kids as well.
Now when they ask whats for lunch, and I say tuna I hear Oh yay!, from my husband and kids. Really! We still have Grandmas Tuna but only once every six weeks now. Please try my recipes and let me know what you think; and if you have some new amazing way of making it I would love to hear yours. These recipes easily convert to "chicken salad" as well.
By the way I use albacore tuna from Bell Buoy; I get it shipped by the case. Yes it is more expensive, but due to the way they can it the flavor is unbeatable. Heres the link if anyone wants it. http://www.bellbuoyofseaside.com/
Katys Sun Valley Tuna
2 cans of Tuna - drained
Juice of 1 lemon
¼ cup sliced pickled jalapeños diced
½ cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves slivered
Janes Crazy Mixed-Up Salt to taste
Mayonnaise scant 1 teaspoon per can of tuna
Mix it all together and let sit and chill for a couple of hours. This has a WOW factor that is incredible. Very low fat due to scant amount of mayo, and excellent in lettuce wraps or tomato cups if watching carbs. Also great (and pretty) on crackers as an appetizer. If you dont care about carbs or fat, this is best served on a slightly toasted bagel, spread thick with cream cheese, and then topped with tuna!
Katys Tuscan Tuna
2 cans of Tuna drained
One can of Small White Beans drained & rinsed
5 green onions -sliced thin
1 fresh garlic clove diced
1 cup Parmesan cheese - shredded
Janes Crazy Mixed-Up Salt
VERY generously drizzle Balsamic Vinegar over tuna. Set aside.
In separate bowl, toss beans, onion, and garlic with enough olive oil to coat well. Salt to taste and then toss with Parmesan cheese. Gently mix in tuna. Chill for a couple of hours. This is low fat due to NO mayo, and FABULOUS over lettuce for low carbs.
Katys Japonaise Tuna
2 cans of Tuna Drained
2/3 cup Mayonnaise
½ cup Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar
3 Tablespoons white sugar
Janes Crazy Mixed up salt to taste
¼ cup Fresh Cilantro chopped
1 bunch green onions sliced thin
2 cups shredded cabbage (the kind for slaw broccoli slaw works great in this too)
1 cup carrots matchstick shred
Whisk together mayo, vinegar and sugar, salt to taste. Stir in Cilantro and Onions. Then toss with cabbage and carrots. Mix in Tuna and chill for several hours. This one is NOT low fat or low carbs so go ahead and serve it on nice thick, slightly toasted, whole wheat bread.
