Most people have their preference on how they like their tuna salad. While some people simply addtuna_salad some mayo and call it a day, we like to dress our tuna salad with celery, apple and red onion.

Sour cream adds some nice acidity and we like to use a ratio of 50:50 between mayonnaise and sour cream. A little lemon juice as well as balsamic vinegar, also goes very well with tuna, as well as a variety of spices: herbs, onion powder, cayenne etc... One spice in particular: lemon pepper works wonderfully in tuna salad and is quite an underrated spice in general.

Either serve this on a sandwich, or on a bed of greens. A nice tuna salad is the perfect way to get your dose of good fats, and it's delicious as well...
