Elle’s Pesto Tuna Salad

I have to be honest, I’m not a fan of mayo-y tuna salad. I prefer an O&V tuna salad, or just a bit of mayo like I’ve used here. The addition of pesto really adds a sweet freshness to the tuna. This serves two, increase as necessary.

Elle’s Pesto Tuna Salad

2 cans of albacore tuna
2 ribs of celery, chopped small
1/2 a large tomato, chopped
2 Tbsp of mayo (I use one made with olive oil)
1 Tbsp of pesto
3 Tbsp (or more if nec) of Elle’s Light White Balsamic Vinaigrette
1/2 tsp dry mustard (or dijon)
salt and pepper to taste

Whisk together everything except the first three ingredients. Mash that into the tuna, then add the celery and tomato. Serve over a bed of baby spinach with whole grain crackers.

Enjoy!
