Friday's Fixin's: MaryAnne's Tuna Salad

111111-tunasalad

I am a big fan of tuna salad.  I could eat it all day as a matter of fact.  As I continually endeavor toward cleaner eating post-FBC (F-bomb breast cancer), I am avoiding the mayo-laden tuna salads and eating only sustainable tuna.  Speaking of which, I am crazy about the Wild Planet brand because it is sustainably caught, has six times the omega 3’s and low mercury (no one can so “no mercury”).

My friend, MaryAnne generously allowed me to share her Tuna Salad recipe on The Silver Pen.  MaryAnne is one of those girls who is gorgeous, fun, smart and wonderfully talented.  When I am fortunate enough to be invited to her home for a dinner party, I always find her in the kitchen perfectly turned out and cool as a cucumber (unlike me who is always frazzled by dinner planning, preparation and service…and then clean-up).

Thanks for sharing, MaryAnne!

MaryAnne’s Tuna Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of sustainable Tuna
  • 1/2 cup of chopped Nicoise olives
  • 1/2 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • Juice of 1 lemon

Instructions:

  • Toss all together with EVOO (I had to ask her what EVOO means…”Extra Virgin Olive Oil”)
  • Season with black pepper

How easy peasy is this (Silver Lining)? It’s fantastic on a bed of arugula.  The perfect, high protein lunch or dinner or snack…or even breakfast (why not?)!

Enjoy!

We are seeing the birth of a new perspective of the world, where ecology and economics are two sides of the same coin.

    Hi!! I, too can eat tuna salad all day long. I, too gave up the mayo version. I have since used a honey mustard plain greek yogurt combo. I'm not an olive fan but might consider trying some grapes. I love them in chix salad. We've been using that tuna for a while now, it's so wonderful to be able to enjoy tuna again!! Have a great weekend!!
