I’ve posted photos of this a few times in my What I Ate Wednesday posts, and I even think Ashley has mentioned this once before in one of hers as well, so I thought it only appropriate that this tuna salad finally have it’s own little recipe post by now! It’s really simple to make, and only requires 4 ingredients. I also have my mom to thank for showing me this simple recipe when I was little.
1 5 oz. can of StarKist Chunk Light Tuna in Water, drained (will yield 4oz. of tuna)
A dash of Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Sweet Relish
2 teaspoons Mayonnaise
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and mix together.
Takes 5 minutes to prepare.
Contains approximately 234 calories.
You can eat it with crackers like Ashley usually does, or you can put it on a sandwich with whatever you’d like! I usually make mine on honey wheat bread with some spinach leaves or spring mix. If you like raw tomatoes and onions, those are also good options to top off your sandwich. And if you aren’t trying to eat a bunch of carbs, or you’re just not terribly hungry, skip the crackers and bread, and eat it out of a bowl (I do this a lot too)!
Tuna is great because it is a naturally high protein food, contains Omega-3s, and is low in fat and cholesterol. Tuna also contains high levels of selenium, which helps our bodies create antioxidant enzymes.
Try it out and let me know what you think!
