Tuna Salad You Can Get Excited About


Tuna Salad You Can Get Excited About | Cook it PrettyTuna salad is typically not anything to write home about, but I promise if you try this combination you’re going to get out your pen.

The best thing about tuna in general is it’s gotta be the easiest protein to keep around. Canned white meat tuna is super inexpensive and those days when I feel like I need to up my protein, chances are it’s already in my cabinet.

My favorite combo brings together sweet, savory, spice, and crunch and I find it so satisfying I don’t even need to put it on bread – so gluten free or carb conscious folks, this works for you! It’s a healthy, guilt free, and quick lunch that I actually crave.

Laura’s Favorite Tuna Salad

Light mayo, to taste
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Black pepper to taste
1 tsp Cumin
1/2 small red onion, diced
1 large or 2 small celery stalks, chopped
Handful Dried cranberries
Handful raw almonds, chopped

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mixing well. Add more seasoning, cranberries, or nuts to taste. Enjoy alone, on crackers, or in a sandwich.
