I’ve been experimenting a lot lately, now that I know flavors better and know what to substitute what for and get the same taste, I’m slowly venturing out their more in creating things for me and my family. I was in the mood for Tuna Salad yesterday and I’m very picky about it because I hate mayo so it has to be dry, and I hate it chunky so their is only like 2 restaurats/cafe’s in my area that I’ll actually order it from. Well now I can make my own because I created a to die for Healthier Tuna salad sandwich!!
3-4 Dill pickles
1 Can of solid white tuna (small)
2 Tbsp. of light cream cheese
What to do:
Well I’m addicted to my small food processor that was collecting dust in my closet these days so now that I have that I’m blending everything!! You can do this by hand however as I mentioned, I hate my tuna chunky!
Process for a few seconds, scrape down the sides, process again, keep doing this until it’s at the consistency you want, the first time I processed it, their were still chunks of pickles so I kept going.
Looks good to me. Few little chunks of pickles never hurt anyone. One day I had it on some toasted light bread with tomatoes! YUM!
The next day I had it over a salad!! Can’t go wrong, lunch two days in a row.
The cream cheese just really gives it a tang, even if I did like mayo I think I’d choose to do the cream cheese instead, it still has to be less fat than mayo! The dill pickle, well why not!!
