When you have been MIA for a while. And, for good measure (back to back virals infecting the whole family, & back to back visits from out of town guests). .
But, can't wait to share this extremely simple, yet delicious Tuna Salad recipe. .
Oh, & my IG folks. I promise. I will get back to all the DMs very soon. .
In case you are wondering, the plate on the left is Mr. "M" 's, & the one on the right is mine. .
Without further ado. Here goes the recipe.
Tuna Salad Sandwich .
Number of servings: 2
Amount per serving: 1 sandwich
1, 5 oz can Tuna (drained)
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
4 slices whole grain bread (optional)
4 inner leaves or as required, lettuce .
In a mixing bowl, gently fold the first six ingredients to make the tuna salad. .
Use as is, on a bed of lettuce accompanied with other vegetables for a hearty salad. .
Or, divide the mixture in two. Place one slice of lettuce each on two slices of bread. .
Then, spread the tuna salad on top. Add sliced cheese, and/or any other sliced vegetable of your choice. Hint: I personally love the combo of Tuna salad & Kalamata olives on whole grain bread. .
Now, cover with remaining slices. .
Serve as is, or with a side of potato chips. .
Or, if you are like me. Then simply top a bed of lettuce & any vegetable of your choice with some tuna salad. And, call it a complete meal. .
