Curried Tuna Salad

My newest obsession: homemade mayonnaise.  I cannot believe that I did the entire whole 30 challenge before without having a batch of this in the fridge the entire time! It is SO easy to make and you will find it tastes SO much better than store bought mayo, I think its a texture thing because let me tell you–homemade mayonnaise is like a soft pillowy cloud of deliciousness. Do yourself a huge favor and make some whole 30 approved homemade mayo this week and with that mayo, do yourself another favor and make a batch of this amazing tuna salad.  It is absolutely delicious, great for a grab and go lunch, and also a great snack (just have 1/2 cup)  if you are just starving and about to eat your fist midday.

Ingredients:

  • 2 (5 oz) cans albacore tuna in water, drained (no salt added)
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup loosely chopped green onion (white and green parts)
  • 1/2 cup of red seedless grapes, halved
  • 2 tbsp. whole 30 approved mayonnaise (I use homemade or Primal Kitchen’s)
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp. minced garlic

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, using a fork stir to combine all ingredients until just blended.  I served mine over a bed of Organic Girl Supergreens (or you can use baby spinach) that I drizzled in Olive oil and the squeeze of some fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Delicious!  (You can store in the fridge for up to a week, its even better as it sits and sometimes I add a little extra lemon juice prior to serving if I think it needs it!)

    This delicious! But I would cut the salt down to 1/4 tsp or add none at all. I ended up having to make another batch minus the salt and add it to the original batch to make it edible for me. I always attempt to make a recipe “as is” the first time around, but I think salt should always be “to taste”.
