Dairy-Free Tuna Salad

Maya UnMarketed | Dairy-free Tuna Salad

When Stephen and I were driving back from our trip to Florida, we stopped at Zaxby’s for dinner.

I figured I’d keep it healthy-ish,¬†so I got the Zaxby’s chicken salad sandwich. And I only ate 3 of Stephen’s fries! ūüėČ

Have you guys seen this¬†comic? It cracked me up!Maya UnMarketed | Dairy-free Tuna SaladAnyway, that sandwich was GOOD and made an impression on me. I started thinking maybe I could recreate something similar yet healthier at home. Chicken and tuna salads are not typically something I eat because of all the mayo; however, I figured I could find something to substitute in for the creaminess!¬†Maya UnMarketed | Dairy-free Tuna Salad The next night, I whipped up this little tuna salad wrap… And then I whipped up another one the next night… and the night after that. It’s seriously delicious!¬†This is definitely another “Hooray for Crocker” recipe, at least to my tastebuds!

To make my dairy-free tuna salad, combine:

  • 1 can drained tuna
  • 3 tablespoons raw canned sauerkraut
  • 1 raw clove of garlic, minced really tiny
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon coconut milk (the canned kind, not the beverage! I find mine in the Thai section of the grocery store)
  • 1/2 cup cooked and cooled brown rice
  • 3/4 of a Jazz apple, cored and diced
  • Shake of tumeric
  • Shake of cayenne pepper
  • Shake of garlic salt

Spoon onto a tortilla (or piece of toast or whatever your heart desires!) and enjoy!!!

Note: coconut milk is typically half hard and half syrupy, so it can be difficult to combine the chunks. I just smush them with the rounded side of a spoon and keep stirring. I’m sure heating it up a little would work too!Maya UnMarketed | Dairy-free Tuna SaladAlso, if you noticed there are no jazz apple pieces (first of all, WOW you’re observant!!) it’s because I didn’t think to add them until the second time making this. I just didn’t want to re-shoot the post. However,¬†I would definitely recommend including them for a sweet bit of crunch! They take the recipe¬†to the next level.

I hope¬†you guys like this tuna salad!¬†And that you’re having an amazing day!

My brother-in-law was visiting (Lady is his dog!) and I went out onto the porch to snap these because the natural lighting was better.¬†Obviously¬†when you shoot a food post around a dog, you’re going to gain a cute¬†little¬†furry¬†assistant!Maya UnMarketed | Dairy-free Tuna Salad
