Tuna salad is one of the easiest things to make. I keep a couple cans of tuna stocked in case I need an extra meal or two during the week. Nothing needs to be cooked. It’s simply a matter of putting things in a bowl and stirring. Then finding a vehicle for you tuna salad. Simple and cheap.

I almost always have pickles on hand. It’s one of those things I don’t find myself eating very often but when I need them they’re there. Also pickles are delicious. Sometimes I see the jar and it reminds me of their existence so I grab one to crunch on.

So the problem with traditional tuna salads is they usually contain mayonnaise. In the modern health-food craze going on, we substitute that with GreekĀ  yogurt. This is a great option. But I can’t eat dairy so I use mustard instead. Dijon mustard is now one of my favorite condiments. It’s so flavorful and a little spicy but with no terrible ingredients in it. I also think the flavor is fairly versatile. My favorite use of it so far is my honey mustard chicken hands down.

Typically I make this stuff as a snack. I eat it with cucumbers to help get my 9-11 servings of vegetables in that day. It’s low-carb but high protein, which I’m always looking for in a mid-afternoon snack. You really can’t go wrong with it! Obviously pictured here is a sandwich. I’m savoring a loaf of ezekiel bread in my freezer currently. That shit’s expensive so I use it sparingly. I don’t eat a ton of bread in general because it makes me feel bloated but this stuff on a sandwich is the best way to eat it honestly. Of course that’s a meal, not a snack.

hard boiled eggs are great in tuna salad as well, but I can't eat eggs either so I don't include them. I topped this particular sandwich with caramelized onions that were leftover from something - feel free to add your own twist!
