Sushi-Inspired Tuna Salad

    10 min

    I wanted to do something different with a tin of tuna so I threw together some ingredients that I had left over from a sushi party. Now I make it all the time for lunch! Tastes best served on lettuce leaves.

    I absolutely LOVED this! I used wasabi powder because that's what was in the cupboard, ground ginger (ditto), and added both a little at a time until it was how I wanted it. Also, I didn't need 1/2c of mayo - just a couple of heaped tbsps. I used the tuna salad to top a couple of split toasted buttered English muffins - the contrasting textures worked extremely well. I really really enjoyed this, and can't wait to make it again for lunch tomorrow! Thanks! (PS, I did indeed make it the next day. I made it into a regular sandwich for husband - on white bread, as recommended - and while he still really enjoyed it, he said it was MUCH better on the toasted muffin. I have to agree!)  -  27 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was great Jen! I had wasabi/mayo in the house so I was thrilled to find this little recipe. Different and delicious. Thanks!  -  16 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Quick and easy. I added jar minced ginger instead(in the fridge), threw it on a salad and sprinkled with rice vinegar as a dressing. Instant healthy lunch! And it helped my sushi craving.  -  14 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
