So I’ve been making this classic Tuna salad for lunch every day for a week now. I love when I make a simple recipe that is flavorful but has minimal ingredients at the same time. Also, it is so easy to assemble- open can, drain, toss in a bowl and stir- kinda easy!
This classic Tuna Salad with capers is my idea of a perfect for lunch. It is not only healthy and filling, but it is also loaded with protein and Omega 3s. And not to mention that it tastes even better the next day.
Which is why I’ve had it for 3,000 days straight because it makes a great meal prep lunch- with a salad or some brown rice.
My mom came over for lunch and she had her on some Carr crackers. And because she likes everything spicy she also added in some crushed red pepper flakes. It was amaaaaaaaazing!
This fresh and light tuna salad recipe is as versatile as it is delicious. Perfect in a sandwich, wrap, salad or as an appetizer for any family get together OR just a good ol’ cold tuna sandwich or a tasty hot grilled tuna melt.
Did I mention it is ready in minutes? So less time in the kitchen and more time outside enjoying the awesome weather. When you make this recipe go ahead and tag me in it. I love seeing your take on my recipes.
Peace and Love,
This Classic Tuna Salad is perfect for lunch. Quick and easy for meal prep with the bonus of it being Healthy and filling. It has tons of health benefits and tastes even better the next day.
- 2 Can White Albacore Tuna in Water (Wild is yummy) 5 oz each
- 1/4 Cup Mayonnaise (light)
- 1 Stalk Celery minced
- 1/2 Onion minced
- 1/2 Tbsp Whole-grain mustard (or dijon)
- 1-2 Tbsp Capers
- 1 Tsp Cilantro or Parsley or Dill (Go wild and add them all)
- freshly squeezed lemon juice
- salt and pepper, to taste
Fill a small bowl with cold water, add minced red onion and let soak for 5 minutes. That will remove the harsh taste of the onion. Drain and set aside for later.
Add tuna to a medium mixing bowl, break up lightly with a fork, then add remaining ingredients. Stir to combine well.
Season with salt, pepper, and lemon juice to taste.
Serve in a wrap, between freshly toasted bread, on top of a salad or alongside some brown rice. Enjoy!
