Tuna is a favorite at our house, even though my younger daughter and I are the only ones who like it in the old school, traditional tuna salad variety. Still, we all know how boring tuna salad can get after a while, right?
So, every once in a while, when you find an interesting looking tuna salad variation, you just have to try it. That’s what happened to me when I was browsing through Crazy Cat Girl’s blog the other day and came across her Easy Lunch to Go: Greek Yogurt & Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes recipe. You can check out her original recipe by clicking on that link.
I used it as a springboard to come up with my own variation (mostly because I didn’t have any tomatoes or scallions, so I had to substitute something!). Here’s my variation:
- 4 large lettuce leaves
- 1 whole large raw carrot, chopped
- 1 cup raw broccoli, chopped
- 1/2 cup sugar snap peas, chopped
- 1 can tuna
- 3 tbspns plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp dill seed
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- Lay the lettuce leaves out flat on a large plate.
- Drain the tuna and scoop it out into a large bowl.
- Chop the carrot, broccoli, and snap peas.
- Add them to the tuna.
- Add the yogurt, onion powder, dill seed, salt, and pepper to the tuna and veggies.
- Stir until thoroughly combined.
- Spoon out a generous portion of the tuna salad into the middle of each lettuce leaf.
- Fold the lettuce around the salad to make little “pockets.”
- Serve immediately.
I’d love to hear what you think about this recipe. Leave me a comment below, and let me know!
