Rich Tuna Salad, Even for the Tuna Haters :)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by SwedishExpat

Years ago I kept craving tuna. Strange, because I am really not a tuna lover. Eventually I came across Bumble Bee albacore tuna (DOLPHIN SAFE, very important to me) packed in water. I bought 2 cans. I used a few normal ingredients and one or two not so mainstream ingredients. It's delicious, almost tastes "roasted" for lack of a better description :) I developed this, but I'm sure others have used something similar. It really satisfied my craving for tuna (must have been my body craving protein and omega 3 fatty acids) I just thought I'd share! Oh, also! The tuna mellows and tastes much better if allowed to sit in the fridge for several hours. Also good on crackers!

Loved it! I followed the recipe to the letter and it made a fabulous lunch today! I served it on whole grain bread and added some sprouts, tomato slices, sliced avocado and pepperoncinis. This would also be great as a salad (using spinach) with a touch of Ranch dressing. Thanks for sharing, SwedishExpat! **Made for PAC Spring 2009**
