Tuna Salad

Here is a different take on tuna salad that my friend, Claire posted on her blog. The idea is to serve it over salad greens for lunch; but I think it would make great sandwich filling, too. I love, love, love tuna I am excited to have a new twist on an old favorite.

Tuna Salad
Adapted From: the Cooking Claire blog

2 cans tuna in water, drained
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/8 cup light mayonnaise
1 tsp lemon pepper
1 green onion, chopped
2 dashes Frank's Red Hot Sauce
1/2 tsp Tony Chachere's seasoning
4 cups spring mix greens
1-2 tsp balsamic vinegar
salad greens
grape tomatoes (optional)
salt and pepper (optional)


Combine all ingredients except greens and vinegar. Mix together. Split greens between two plates, divide tuna mixture in half and place on greens. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.

The Result:
This tuna salad does not disappoint! I think it might be my new favorite way to have tuna salad. Although, that could just be the balsamic vinegar talking. I swear I could drink balsamic vinegar as a beverage (okay, maybe not)...I heart it so much. I topped my salad with a light sprinkle of salt and pepper, some grape tomatoes, and a few splashes of my beloved balsamic. Let me say, YUM. It was great, and something that I am going to put into my permanent lunch repertoire.
