Spicy Cabbage Salad with Tuna

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

This is adapted from a recipe for Spicy Cabbage Salad with Mackerel, since I had tuna and didn't have mackerel. Mackerel is supposed to be really good for you, but it's also pretty fishy. I'll get a can, though, or at least price it, and try this recipe with mackerel sometime. This was one serving and was all I had for supper. It cost $1.02 or thereabouts.

(adapted from a recipe in Michele Urvater's Monday to Friday Cookbook)

2 T mayo
1 T apple cider vinegar
dash cayenne
sweetener equal to 1/4 t sugar
salt and pepper to taste
150 g finely shredded cabbage
25 g finely chopped onion
1 can tuna, drained

Mix the mayo, vinegar, cayenne, sweetener and salt and pepper in a bowl until smooth. Add the cabbage and onion and mix well. Add the tuna and mix well.

Variations -
1. The recipe calls for half a green pepper, 2 tablespoons of fresh dill or parsley, and salad greens and/or tomatoes for serving. I didn't have them so didn't use them. Some dill, even dried, in the dressing would probably be good.
2. The recipe suggests adding some cooked grains. This might be a good salad with Cauli-rice instead of cabbage. I'd probably add more onion if I did that.
3. Other variations suggested by the recipe are avocado, apple, walnuts, or leftover steamed veggies like green beans or snow peas.
