Possibly the Most Flavorful Tuna Salad Ever
Growing up, I ate more tuna salad than I wanted to. It was always our go-to meal whenever we had no groceries at the house, and I began to hate it from a young age. That was before I understood the true beauty of the dish: convenience. When I finally had my own place and was in charge of feeding myself, I realized how essential it was to have quick and reliable meals like tuna salad. All I had to do was make it taste good.
I’ve been on a turmeric kick lately because of the anti-inflammatory benefits, so I thought adding it to tuna salad would give it a nice flavor and color! Fresh dill amps it up another level, leaving you with a super flavorful meal that can be prepared in less than 10 minutes!
