Gussied-Up (low-mercury) Tuna Salad. Perfect for any party, lunch, breakfast, or whenever.

Tuna fish in a can makes a quick lunch, but I’ll only buy one brand of tuna. Wild Planet is a tuna fish I can trust to have low mercury and high omega fatty acids.

When we travel on the road, we eat it right out of the can for a satisfying protein and nutrient boost (we take these to Disney Land, too).

But, today, I’m sharing a recipe where it’s all gussied up with delicious textures and flavors. My whole family loves this, especially the bites with hidden gems in them like diced dried apricot.

Gussied-Up (low-mercury) Tuna Salad

Yield 2 to 4

  • 2 cans low-mercury tuna
  • Juice 1 organic lemon or lime
  • 1/2 cup grass-fed organic (full-fat) Greek yogurt
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped <— get a good knife
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp kelp granules
  • 1/2 to 1 cucumber, chopped
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • Drizzle quality raw organic olive oil (or brain boosting MCT oil)
  • 1/2 cup raw sauerkraut
  • 1 tablespoon organic mustard
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup diced dried apricots (or currants)
  • Handful each cilantro, parsley chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Mix everything together with a large spoon in a large bowl. Enjoy.
