Lemon, fresh basil…. and canned tuna. Yep, you heard me right. Canned tuna.
Are you having flash backs to elementary school when your mom packed you a soggy tuna sandwich and it looked and smelled so gross that nobody wanted to sit with you? Don’t worry, I wouldn’t do that to you!
This tuna salad is very light and refreshing.
Summer Tuna Salad
1 can solid white albacore tuna, drained
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
1/2 tsp. fresh lemon zest
2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
juice from half a lemon
salt and pepper to taste
Mix it all together and serve with crackers. You could also serve it on a bed of lettuce and make it even lighter and fresher! Or add some diced celery for a little crunch.
