Watermelon Radish Tuna Tostadas

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that a can of tuna, in some form or fashion, makes it way into my lunches often. It’s quick, easy and personally… I just love the way it tastes. I either buy Wild Planet Skip Jack Tuna or Safecatch Tuna. Both are good quality, low in mercury, wild caught tuna. 

Anyway, I like to get creative when I make a tuna salad and here is my latest creation featuring the hottest new root veggie, a watermelon radish! Not only are the absolutely beautiful, but I love how crisp they are! They are very neutral in taste, they aren’t near as bitter or pepper-y like regular Radishes. I buy mine at Whole Foods, but they aren’t always there, so keep your eyes peeled. If you do see them, grab them!! They really brighten up your plates! 

If you can’t find Watermelon Radish, try slices of cucumber, daikon radish, or even celery root sliced thin for your tostada! Enjoy!
