Because tuna is no longer a regular part of my diet, I haven’t had tuna salad in a while but lately I’ve been craving it. I try not to eat it often, because tuna is a fish that is high in mercury, but enjoying a little every once in a while (about once, maybe twice a month) seems to work for me.
Here is a recipe I conceptualized yesterday, while searching for quick healthy ingredients for lunch and dinner. I was craving something different than the typical creamy mayo based tuna salad with relish and onions. I wanted to create enjoyable dish that combined flavors I enjoy, for a twist on a lunchtime classic.
What I came up with is a lovely, light textured, versatile salad that will delight your taste buds, while filling your belly.
