Tuna Salad Lettuce Cups

By November 29, 2017Recipes

It’s summer — and hot food and standing over the stove just doesn’t sound appetizing in the least. ESPECIALLY when you live in TEXAS! So, I decided to make an indoor picnic of sorts, because an outdoor picnic this time of year is frankly, a sweat-fest.

I grew up on my Grandmothers’ (who I call Nina) tuna fish sandwiches on fresh sourdough bread. And to this day, I make tuna salad the EXACT same way she used to – can you guess the secret ingredient? Scroll down to see! And when you do, no “oooo that’s gross!” or “WHAT!?!? I’m not trying that!” Just add the ketchup (oops – gave it away!), mix it up and you’ll never know it’s in there – except that this is going to be the best tuna salad you’ve ever had. Seriously.

These make a great, clean eating, quick and easy lunch or dinner! I love to make my Roasted Green Beans and Roasted Heirloom Potatoes to go with this!
