You’re probably wondering why the word recipe is in quotes. Well, let me tell you- this really isn’t a recipe. In fact, it’s more like a serving suggestion. You won’t even find the typical printable recipe card here today. This is a meal you completely and totally customize as according to what you like.
Some of you may know that I have type two diabetes. I was diagnosed about 8 years ago, and have mostly relied on diet and exercise to control it. Due to a lot of poor choices on my part, I ended up on medication. Now, I’m struggling to get back on track and off the meds. This tuna salad recipe is a good, easy meal and it doesn’t cost much to make.
First, I start by taking a can of white albacore tuna, draining the water off of it.
I chop up three to four bread and butter pickles.
Then, I put the tuna in the bowl with the pickles and add about a tablespoon of mayonnaise to the mixture.
Give it a good stir and then you’re ready to eat.
You can spread the tuna salad on a cracker, or you can spread it on some bread. It also tastes good on flatbread or a pita.
There are so many different ways to make this. I’ve put in pineapple instead of pickles. I’ve put in relish instead of chopping pickles. I’ve used Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise for fewer calories. It’s completely up to you.
Hope you enjoy it!
