Tuna salad with a twist (of lime)

Tuna salad is often too fishy or worse yet, flavorless and watery. This recipe might just change your outlook on this lunch-time classic.


2 cans of tuna in water

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

2 tbs or so minced red onion

1/4 cup finely chopped radishes

1-2 serrano chilis, finely chopped with seeds removed

juice of 1 lime

2 tbs mayonnaise

pinch of salt


Drain tuna well.

In a large bowl, combine tuna, radishes, onion, cilantro and chilis.

Mix lime juice, salt and mayonnaise well. Add this to the salad until well incorporated.

Taste this and adjust ingredients accordingly: you might want more crunch, for example, or for it to be creamier or more spicy.

Serve with flavorful bread or on crackers.
