Tuna, a pantry staple for many Americans, a sandwich companion for generations. Tuna Salad brings out all the natural flavor of tuna and can be classified as a healthy food with it’s 50% vegetable content. Our family loves cold salads, sometime soon I will share our famous Southern Potato Salad recipe, but this one is all you can handle for today.

The Ingredients: 3 cans Starkist tuna (drain 2 of them), 2 carrots, 2 stalks celery, 4 green onions, 1/2 cup chopped pickles, 2 hard-boiled eggs, 2 tbsp. olive oil mayonnaise, 1 tbsp. spicy brown mustard, 1/2 tsp. garlic, 1 tsp. italian seasoning, 1/4 tsp. black pepper.

Grate carrots and dice celery and onions, combine with pickles, spices, and tuna. Mix well. Add mayo, mustard, and eggs. Stir until combined. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour. Serve on whole grain mini baguettes with shredded lettuce, ranch dressing, and tomato slices.
