Tuna Salad

Yield 2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz can of tuna in water (most tuna in oil is packed with unhealthy oils)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 bunch of green onions
  • ¼ cup fresh or dried dill
  • 3 stalks of celery (optional)
  • Black Pepper

Directions:

Remove the ends (hairy part) and the top couple inches of the green onion.  The top green part can be woody in texture.  Chop the green onion.

Remove bottom end of celery and any wilted part of the stalk.  Chop celery in small half moon pieces.  Combine with green onions in large mixing bowl.

Add dried dill or chopped fresh dill, dijon mustard and olive oil to a small mixing bowl and whisk together until creamy.

Drain water from the tuna and use a knife to break up the bigger pieces.  Add to onion and celery.

Mix in dijon/olive oil mixture until coated.  You can add more or less depending on your preference of consistency.  More  will make it creamier and wetter while less will give it more bulk (better for sandwiches).

Add cracked black pepper to taste.

**You can substitute the tuna for salmon, sardines, or even chicken.  Depending on the main ingredient, play with different spices.  For example, rosemary is great paired with chicken while salmon tastes great with capers or thyme.
