I am on a serious tuna kick at the moment! Seems to be my go to lunchtime craving lately and I’ve been experimenting by adding different items to my tuna salad.
The other day I randomly decided to try adding in a few green olives that were left in the bottom of the jar. I was looking to finish them off so I could bust out the fresh jar and, why not?
Here are a few awesome mayo recipes you can use, as we all know most of the store bought stuff is full of terrible ingredients:
- NomNom Paleo’s Mayo Recipe
- Melissa Joulwan’s Homemade Mayo Recipe
- Food Lover’s Primal Palate Macadamia Nut Mayo Recipe
- Everyday Paleo’s Homemade Mayo Recipe
For times when I just can’t make my own I do keep a jar of Spectrum Brand Olive Oil Mayonnaise on hand. It’s not the best and probably isn’t paleo, but it’s better than the standard store bought mayo and it works for me. Happens to be vegan as well for you that have trouble with eggs.
It actually turned out really great and I thought I would share. Let me know what you think if you try it and I’d love to know what you like to mix into your tuna, share in the comments!
- 1 can of Starkist or other casein free brand of tuna fish
- 1 Tbs. of mayonnaise
- 2 tsp. of yellow mustard
- 4 green olives
- Drain liquid from tuna fish and mince green olives.
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well incorporated.
- Enjoy on a sandwich, on veggies, or by the forkfull!
