I think tuna fish is often overlooked, forgotten or people are fearful to eat it. It’s a great meal or snack packed with 14 grams of protein and only 100 calories per 2 ounces. I know there are concerns of mercury levels in tuna. There is a lot of information out there and I suggest you read up so you are armed with info and not fear. I only buy American Tuna which is pole caught wild white albacore tuna. They have a great website with lots of information. I hope you’ll check it out. You can also find out where you can purchase this tuna and see video of them actually catching tunas.
This is the best tasting tuna I’ve ever had. There is no added oil or water to the can so nothing to drain. I don’t know about you but half the time I would squeeze the lid on the can to drain the water from tuna cans, and I would get squirted, in the face, and smell like tuna. Cats would follow me down the street. No, only kidding, but I felt like they would start any minute.
There are many ways to use this tuna but tuna fish salad being the most popular. Again, check out the American Tuna website for more recipe ideas. This tuna fish salad accompanied the Egg salad and Pesto Chicken Salad on my picnic. Where will yours go with you?
2 -6 oz cans of American Tuna Wild Albacore Tuna (or your favorite)
4 TB organic mayo
2-3 green onions, sliced
1 handful white onions, diced
4 inches of fresh chives, sniped (I like regular and garlic chives mixed)
1 sprig fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp celery salt
Mix all ingredients together and let the party start! This is another great salad to scoop into lettuce leaves or on crackers. It’s also great on top of a cucumber or bell pepper wedge, red and orange are my favorite.
I’d love to hear from you, how do you use tuna?
