Friday recipe: tuna salad

March 19, 2010 —

This is one of my go-to recipes. If I don’t have any ideas for dinner I usually have tuna in the cupboard and can throw together some quick sandwiches and call it a meal. This recipe is from the Sonoma Diet book. It only makes one serving, so I usually double it.

I like to throw mine in the oven with a slice of pepper jack cheese until it gets nice and melty. Yum!

    I like adding grapes to tuna salad, like how the DMU cafeteria adds it to their chicken salad, my favorite!

    Hi.Thanks for sharing all the details.It can be easily made,but unlike you i won’t add that extra cheese because i don’t like recipes with too much of cheese.Planning to try this one out in the weekend.
