Tuna salad is a staple in my house! Canned tuna is one of the most convenient sources of protein; shelf stable, healthy and ready to eat. I often make tuna salad while traveling, need a quick lunch or when I need to come home to fast dinner after an evening training session. Forget the sloppy, mayo loaded tuna salads of your childhood, this one is all grown up.
1 Can Tuna ( I eat either Wild Planet or Safe Catch - sustainability and mercury reasons!)
1 Scallion, sliced thin
1 carrot, shredded
2 tbsp Raisins
1 tbsp Sunflower Seeds
1/4 cup Golden Tahini Dressing
Add all ingredients to a bowl and mash together. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Scoop onto bread, seed crackers or a bed of organic greens.
This bold sandwich combo will help you power through workouts by providing beet power, lasting energy, and amazing flavor.
Tuna salad can be a great, healthy meal for athletes with little desire for meal prep. Forget the sloppy, mayo loaded tuna salads of your childhood, this one is all grown up.
