This is a quick and simple salad to make for warm weather evenings. While tuna has high mercury, the Skipjack Wild tuna is a smaller tuna with much lower levels of mercury. Wild Planet is a good brand.
- 2 cans of Skipjack tuna or wild Sockeye canned salmon
- 2 large carrots chopped fine
- 2-3 stalks of celery chopped fine
- 2 large spoonfuls of Vegenaise
- Sprinkling of sea salt and/or curry powder
Optional: cut up radishes, sliced cherry tomatoes, scallions
Drain the canned fish of any liquid
Put in a large bowl and break up pieces with a fork
Add the Vegenaise, carrots, and celery and any spices
Prepare a platter of salad greens
Arrange the fish salad on the platter
Add any other veggies you like on the edges of the salad
Sprinkle with chopped cilantro (this herb helps to remove mercury from fish)
Any leftover salad can be refrigerated – Enjoy!
