As I was browsing recipes at Simply Recipes’s blog, I found this Tuna Salad Sandwich Recipe that looks really easy. My hubby likes to eat a tuna sandwich on the weekends. So I thought, I’ll spoil him and make this different Tuna Salad sandwich for him.
So I did, last week. The stuff I needed to make this salad were canned tuna, red onion, parsley, cottage cheese, capers, dijon mustard, mayonnaise, dill, and celery.
First, I drained and dumped the canned tuna into a large bowl.
Because it was canned tuna in water, the recipe said to drizzle on some olive oil, and I did.
Then I dumped the chopped red onion…
The chopped celery…
Then I squeezed the lemon juice all over…
Added some pinched fresh dill…
Dumped the chopped parsley…
The cottage cheese…
Added some mayonnaise…
Then the Dijon mustard…
And mixed it all up.
I served the Tuna Salad on slices of Boule bread I got from Kroger, along with Fritos, my hubby’s favorite. It was delicious, and very easy to make. Enjoy!
