Sure… Throw That In, Too!

That was my motto when creating my lunch today.

I knew I wanted tuna salad, but I also wanted chickpeas and sweet corn. What’s a girl to do?

Throw them all into the salad and hope for the best, of course!

Tuna Salad

Today’s tuna salad included:

  • Tuna
  • Light Miracle Whip
  • Dijon mustard
  • Relish
  • Sweet corn
  • Chickpeas
  • Sliced baby carrots

I also enjoyed a snack sized baggie of carrots on the side.

Monday's Lunch

I wasn’t sure how I’d like my random ingredient tuna salad since I generally limit tuna salad to the fish, mayo, mustard, relish, celery and onion. Fortunately this was an experiment that turned out really well. Everything tasted great and I got to enjoy all the foods I was craving.

Well… almost everything I was craving. Chocolate didn’t make the cut, but including chocolate chips in the tuna salad would be barf-inducing, I believe.

What little extras do you include in tuna or chicken salad?

I love adding in fun foods and flavors to kick tuna or chicken salad up a notch. I’d love some creative suggestions!
