Recipe: Tuna Snack

I've been craving tuna lately. So I went ahead & made myself a sandwich the other day, the exact same way I've always made a tuna sandwich: tuna + mayo + bread = sandwich. I was less than thrilled with the results... something was missing. I wanted my tuna salad to be fresher & livelier, like a real salad. After a bit of trial & error, I ended up with this tuna snack for lunch yesterday & boy, was it ever delicious!

Tuna Snack


1 carrot
1 radish
1 green onion
salt, pepper & chervil leaves
small can of tuna (99g / 3.5oz)
Miracle Whip or mayonnaise


1. Finely dice vegetables.

2. Flake tuna with a fork. Mix with vegetables. Season with salt, pepper & chervil leaves.

3. Mix in mayo to desired consistency.
I don't like mine too runny, so I added about 2 tablespoons of mayo.

Serve on crackers or in a sandwich.

Variations: Feel free to adjust the vegetables & spices to your taste. I probably would have included celery if I had some. Parsley can be substituted for the chervil leaves (a milder member of the parsley family). Lemon might be a nice flavouring to try, if you like lemon with your fish.

That does look good. I went thru a similar scenario with a boring ol' tuna sandwich this past week.

Think I'll try this with my next venture into tunaland.
