recipe: APPLE AND BASIL TUNA

I could literally eat a tuna sandwich everyday for lunch.  There is something so delicious and even comforting about it for me.  But all that mayo can get fattening.  So I came up with a recipe that uses less mayo than normal and added lemon for moisture and flavor, plus a few extra bits of flavor! 

And remember the half an apple that you have left over from the Apple and Cucumber Guacamole?  Well now you can use it in this recipe...




INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 can of tuna (I prefer to use tuna in water with no salt added and then you can add a small amount of salt on your own).
  • 1/4 fuji or gala apple
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of red onion depending upon your taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil
  • 1/4 lemon (1 wedge)
  • spoonful of mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

Drain tuna and place in bowl to mix.

Finely chop onion, apple and basil and add everything to the bowl.

Squeeze in lemon juice, add mayonnaise, add a dash of salt and pepper and mix all the ingredients together.

Taste.  You can always add more salt, pepper, lemon or mayo depending on your taste preference. 

Makes enough for 2 sandwiches.  I recommend using a sprouted grain bread for increased nutritional value.
