Tuna Salad Recipes
Spend your lunchtime savoring the flavor of the sea with one of these quick and healthy tuna salad recipes.
For years, canned tuna has been a lunchtime standard. So shake up the ordinary by preparing one of these delicious dishes for your midday meal.
For starters, how about this Tuna Salad Melt?
The classic tuna melt gets a healthy makeover with this open-faced version. The walnuts give it an extra-special touch.
A favorite in southern France, pan bagnat (pan ban-YAH) means "bathed bread." The bread in this sandwich is meant to absorb some liquid from the filling, so it's fine to assemble it entirely ahead of time. Pair with potato salad, pasta salad, or baked chips.
Instead of cleaning out the fridge to put lunch together, toss pasta with quality tuna; its richness and flavor will carry the salad, which is embellished with simple flavorings. Pack a piece of torn baguette to round out the meal.
This recipe begins with uncooked grain, which needs an hour in the pot and a little time to cool. If you need to save time, hunt down some precooked whole-grain farro on your local grocery store's rice aisle.
