Easy Summertime Salad: Tunafish Salad @livligahome

There is something much more appealing about prepared foods in the summertime. To have the ingredients of a salad or sandwich ready to go makes meal planning and preparation much more manageable in the heat.

Tunafish salad is easy to make ahead and keep in the refrigerator for a lunch or light dinner. Below is an easy recipe that makes a great salad on top of lettuce or in a sandwich:

1 5 oz can tunafish, white albacore
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
2 tsp capers
1 Tbls Dijon mustard
1 Tbls Light mayonnaise
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped

  1. Drain the tunafish and put in a bowl.
  2. Add all other ingredients
  3. Mix the ingredients together.
  4. Divide the mixture 
For sandwich version (makes 3 servings)~ Place 1/3 of tunafish mixture onto a slice of toasted whole grain bread. Place a slice of tomato on top. Put another slice of toasted bread on top. Slice in half for serving. Calories: 344

For salad version (makes 2 servings)~ Place 1/2 of tunafish mixture on a bed of mixed greens and serve. Calories: 180
