Tuna Salad

This is NOT your mom’s tuna salad. No offense moms. I still love your tuna salad sandwiches! What I mean by “not your mom’s tuna salad” is that it is more than just mayo and a can of tuna. There is so much flavor in this recipe. I’ve had this for lunch everyday for about a week and I’m not bored – which speaks millions for this recipe. Ok. Here it is (An Our Best Bites Recipe):


  • 1 6-oz. can tuna
  • 1 stalk celery, minced
  • 1/2 small tart apple, chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1/3 c. light mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard (or honey mustard)
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1 tsp. pickle relish
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 c. sliced almonds, toasted


Mix the first 4 ingredients in one bowl, the next 5 ingredients in another bowl, then combine the two bowls. Add almonds to garnish. Here’s where I got the recipe: http://www.ourbestbites.com/2009/01/tuna-salad/

They use curry powder, I use cumin and coriander. The apples taste awesome with this mix – don’t skip them! You can imagine this recipe is as adaptable as you want it to be. I was excited about the cumin and coriander. I found that it makes ~5-6 sandwiches and using light mayo this is lower in calories than the normal bologna and cheese!
