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!
- 2 (6 ounce) cansbumble bee albacore tuna in water (other brands may be substituted, but I prefer Bumble Bee)
- 1 cup Best Foods Mayonnaise (again, a personal preference)
- 2 (4 1/4 ounce) cansof chopped black olives
- 1 small red onion
- 2 medium dill pickles
- 1 teaspoon fresh dill
- 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried mustard
- Drain tuna, trying to get as much juice out as you can.
- Feed the juice to your kitties :).
- Place in a medium bowl.
- Dice the red onion finely.
- Dice the dill pickle finely.
- Mix the above ingredients with the mayonnaise and mix as finely as possible.
- Add the chopped olives, lemon pepper, fresh dill and dried mustard, mix well.
- Serve on freshly baked Sourdough bread. Add lettuce and tomato, if desired.
- For a low carb version, omit bread and dollop on a nice bed of lettuce (free food!) :).
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**
