I was looking for a new tuna salad recipe to try. I make this one from Well Fed often, but I needed a change. I was inspired by this recipe over at greenlitebites.com, but I only had the shorter "pickling"cucumbers from the farmers market. Also, I wanted to use my homemade mayo in place of yogurt. I left out the soy & wasabi and added some dry mustard. Here's my recipe:
1 4oz can of Sustainable Seas Albacore Tuna (any wild-caught tuna will work)
1 fresh carrot, julienned
1-2 Tbsp of homemade paleo mayo (or use your favorite recipe)
1 tsp of lemon juice (I just juiced 1/3 of a large lemon)
salt & pepper, a few shakes each
1/2 tsp of dry ground mustard
1-2 cucumbers, sliced long way for rolling, or short way for "sandwiches"
Mix all of the ingredients (minus the cucumber) together in a bowl. I find that it helps to use a fork to break up the tuna. Then, either top your little cucumber circles with a spoonful of the tuna salad or roll up your cucumber strips. You can make open-faced "sandwiches" or top with another cucumber slice. This recipe is great for a hot summer day.
