Everyone has had a good tuna salad at some point. Whether it was a tuna sandwich your mom made on a hot summer weekend or if it was an upgraded tuna sandwich from your favorite sandwich shop. Heck you may have even spotted a fancy tuna salad sandwich on the lunch menu of a nice restaurant.
I always have tuna in my kitchen cupboard, and when you don't have much time or cannot think of what to make, this is one of the easiest 5 minute meals. Tuna salad can be served on a sandwich, in lettuce wraps, over a salad, with crackers, as a tuna melt, or even eaten by itself. It is a very versatile meal, and I am going to give you a versatile recipe to make an Elite Tuna Salad!
Even if you stumbled across our recipe and aren't a fan of truffles, you can certainly enjoy this one!
Elite Tuna Salad
Tuna was one of my favorite dishes as a kid. When my mom would make it, it was very simple: a can of tuna, mayo, finely chopped onion, chopped celery, and a little salt and pepper to taste. Granted, when I was a kid, I wasn't much a fan of celery, so I got very plain tuna for my meals, and I'd always eat it before tests, as my mom and grandma said it was brain food.
This recipe can definitely be adjusted to taste, but its basically how I like my tuna, plus some truffle sauce thrown in. It's quite simply the best tuna!
5 oz of canned tuna, (1 can, in water)
2 tbsp of mayonnaise
1 tbsp of Truffletopia White Truffle Sauce
1/4 cup of cucumber (chopped)
1/2 tsp of celery salt
1/4 tsp of onion powder
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
black pepper to taste
In a bowl mix the tuna, mayo, Truffletopia White Truffle Sauce, cucumber, and spices.
Enjoy by itself, on a sandwich or melt, atop of a salad, in a tortilla wrap, in a lettuce wrap, or simply with crackers!
- Feel free to substitute a rib of finely chopped celery and salt to taste for celery salt.
- Substitute 1 tablespoon of finely chopped onion for onion powder.
- Adjust spices to taste, if needed.
- Add 1/4 cup of chopped tomatoes to add a little freshness.
- Serve with crackers as an appetizer, side dish, or snack.
- For a low fat option, cut back on the mayonnaise
- For low carb options, use lettuce to make tuna lettuce wraps, or use the tuna as a salad topping
