Thai Tuna Salad


When I am eating healthy, tuna is a go-to lunch for me. Most tuna salad is pretty unhealthy because of the large amount of mayo, but I like to find new creative mixins. Normally I use avocado, but this time I tried to Thai it up with some coconut milk, sriracha, fish sauce, and lime juice. It came out awesome and I'm sure it will be a staple for me in the next few months.

There is a chinese place next to my job. Like literally next door. It takes me 10 steps to walk there. Lunch costs 5 dollars for anything you want and it comes with crab rangoons. And if i walk to them to order, they do me a favor and walk it back to me when it's ready. It's seriously hard for me to not to cave, but when I have something like this in my lunch box, it makes it ok.

Tuna, cucumber, carrot, coconut milk, fish sauce, sriracha, lime juice, cilantro, scallions. Put it on some mixed greens, top with peanuts and more lime.  Or, ya know, toss it in a sub roll or something.


I am a HUGE fan of your blog but this is my first comment. As a culinary school graduate and current line chef, I'd like to thank you for your inspiration. Every morning I wake up and read your most recent post and I'm saddened when I find the previous days post. As for this recipe- sounds delish. I too am a huge fan of "the tuna salad" but I've ran out of ideas on how to change it up. Thank you so much, I'm making this for lunch for sure! Thanks again for your wonderful site!!

Look delicious....
