Nothing turns me off faster from a recipe than mayo. The way it looks just irks me the wrong way. When I order a burger or sandwich, that white clumpy stuff better come no where near my bread. Therefore, I refuse to use it in my tuna salad. Some say I’m crazy because I am missing one of the essential ingredients but I say MUSTARD is sooo much better.
This tuna salad will keep you feeling light and energized.
1 can of tuna, drained (I use white chunk albacore in water)
1/4 cup apple, cubed
1/8 cup raisins
1/8 cup pecans, chopped
1 tbsp. dijonmustard
crushed red pepper flakes to taste
pepper to taste
1 tbsp. hemp seed (optional)
If making a salad:
lettuce (I used half of a romaine heart
honey mustard drizzle (1 pt. honey to 1 pt. mustard – I used 1/2 tbsp)
If making a sandwich:
your bread of choosing
Mix all of your ingredients together and top on a bed of lettuce or on your bread of choosing.
Drizzle with the honey mustard or leave plain (your choice), top with the hemp seed (optional) and dig in to a nice big healthy and fun salad!
