Tuna Salad



                At first I have to apologize that I have been lazy lately posting a blog, because a lot of things are going on so I almost don’t have time to write or cook Thai food, but I will try to do it better.

                Today I will have an easy menu for everyone that loves tuna and this recipe is so lean, because usually American Tuna salad is used in mayonnaise to make it, but for this recipe mayonnaise is not involved.  This is a Thai style Tuna salad, just a spicy salad that you can serve with rice or on lettuce as a salad or as an appetizer in a celery boat.  It is so easy that you can whip it up in 10 minutes!!!

Ingredients

1 can of Tuna in vegetable oil drained

¼ cup thin slice onion

2-3 Thai chilis or 1 jalapeno chili

2 tbsp. lime or lemon juice

2 tbsp. fish sauce or 1 tsp. salt

3-4 spring mint

Lettuce or celery cut it into 1 inch (optional)

Cooking instructions

1.       Add all of the ingredients except lettuce or celery  in the mixing bowl and mix well

2.       If you like it in celery boats put the salad in the middle of celery and serve cold or serve over lettuce.

I told you that was easy!!!
