Truffled Paleo Tuna Salad

Fast and Easy Truffled Paleo Tuna Salad


 

This easy-peasy Truffled Paleo Tuna Salad proves there is no need to give up quick and easy lunch favorites when you switch over to a healthier, paleo style of eating.

 

Here is a recipe for basic tuna salad (from BPA free, canned tuna in olive oil or water), without using a soybean oil mayonnaise.

 

Yes, I know, I didn’t think I could live without Best Foods Mayonnaise™ either. I survived, and you can too. Additionally, you’ll be eating the healthier, and more nutritious ingredients of organic olive oil and a fantastic sea vegetable called dulse.

(for each can of tuna, use:)

  • 2  tsp.  olive oil
  • 1/2  tsp.  truffle oil
  • 1/2  tsp.  ground cumin
  • 1  1/2  tsp. dulse flakes (optional, but this really makes the taste of this dish pop)
  • if you don’t use the dulse, add a pinch of sea salt to the above ingredients

 

 


1. Mix the above quantities of ingredients for each one can of tuna you use. 

 

If you need a larger serving, just add the above amounts for each additional can of tuna you use.

 

The truffle oil adds a very interesting note to the usual tuna taste. By avoiding mayonnaise, you avoid that nasty processed soybean oil and any refined sugar.

 

The dulse flakes are a tasty  red seaweed or “sea lettuce”, that has a very mild, spicy and salty taste. Dulse is packed with vitamins, minerals, iron and iodine. It is a clinically proven antioxidant, and is known for its high iodine content. This natural iodine source can help ward off hypothyroidism and a host of other iodine deficient induced health problems.

 

This yummy organic seaweed comes chopped and dried, in a shaker bottle, making it easy to add to soups, broths and anything that would taste good with a little extra salty flavor. It is a super sneaky way to add more vegetables and nutrition to your family’s food without much change of taste to any dish! I have found it at Whole Foods and bought it on-line. Enjoy it in your Truffled Paleo Tuna Salad.
