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! 😉
Have you guys seen this comic? It cracked me up!Anyway, 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! 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!Also, 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!
p.s. Isn’t the picture with sweet Lady priceless?! 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!
