Main Dish Salad #15 - Simple Tuna Salad

Saturday, August 01, 2020

That's what Jane Brody calls it in her 1990 cookbook, Jane Brody's Good Food Gourmet. She was big on low-fat, high carb eating, and touts the fact that there's no mayo in this salad.

I wasn't at all impressed. I'd rather have mayo in my tuna salad, and something like lemon juice or dill pickle juice to give it a bit of sharpness. But here's the recipe, anyway.

(adapted from Jane Brody's Good Food Gourmet)

1 can water-packed tuna, drained
3/4 c cottage cheese (I used full fat)
1 green onion, thinly sliced
1 rib celery, finely diced

Mix it all together and eat it however you usually eat tuna salad. I served it over a couple of cups of lettuce and half a tomato, and sprinkled an ounce of sunflower seeds on top.

    I think if you are trying to do low fat, Greek yogurt would have worked better anyway. I agree that this doesn't sound like it would cut it for me!
