For someone that’s been a fan of tuna since I was like 15 and ate it EVERYDAY, I’m pretty surprised it took me FOREVER to make it a tad bit more exciting than just tuna and sriracha.
(Tuna & sriracha is the OG recipe though, with some crackers – yes.)
This recipe came about during a girls night with Val. She of course plated the table with like 300 snacks but the tuna was the one that I devoured.
The next week when I realized I spent all my money on Zara and forgot to buy groceries, I figured “that one tuna salad” Val made would be the perfect, cheap, easy, healthy go to lunch…for the week. Ha!
I went based off memory, threw everything together in a mixing bowl, tossed it on a cracker with some avocado and spicy pickles and wallah, a new obsession was born.
I love this snack A LOT because it’s really versatile. It can be a snack or a meal. I can be satisfied with it on some crackers and my boyfriend loves it as a tuna melt so everyone’s winning.
I like to make a little bit of a bigger batch with 2 cans of tuna so that way i can pick at it for a few days or grab some and take it to work as dinner!
HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
– 2 Cans of water (white albacore in water)
– 2 Tablespoons vegan mayo (I personally love the vegan spread from trader Joe’s)
– 1 Heaping tablespoon on Dijon Mustard
– 3 Inches of Fresh Dill, Finely chopped
– 1 Piece of Celery, Finely Chopped
– Sea Salt to taste
All you need to do is mix everything together!
Then like I said, I like to buy some kind of long, flat crackers that I can spread avocado on, then I top it with the tuna and add some spicy pickles! (I’m realizing that you can find spicy pickles really anywhere but my favorite ones are at Whole Foods!).
