Why Skipjack Tuna for Easy Healthy Tuna Salad?

Go to Wild Planet Foods website to read about their Skipjack Tuna !

Wild Planet is the first sustainably caught skipjack tuna on the market. Their hand-cut and hand-packed tuna steaks are cooked directly in the can just once to retain their natural juices, Omega‑3 oils and a firm texture. Each can contains only tuna steak seasoned with a touch of sea salt and no added water or oil so there is nothing to drain. The natural juices enhance the flavor allowing you to experience the delicious, big flavor of this pristine, light tuna. Each 3oz serving contains 20g of protein and an average of 374mg EPA and DHA Omega‑3s. (From the WILDPLANET website www.wildplanetfoods.com)

According to this brand’s thorough tuna procurement policy, you can count on this can to be sustainably sourced. This is also one of the healthiest tuna’s you will find in the grocery store. One 3-ounce serving boasts more than 700 milligrams of omega-3s and 21 grams of protein. Without added oil, water, or fillers, it doesn’t need to be drained before enjoying, however in this recipe I still do drain it!

Tuna Salad Sandwich Recipe

I used Bagel Thins and microgreens to complete this sandwich! I get my microgreens from a local farm that grows them right near where I live! If you are local to me here in Cleveland, Ohio….the farm is Lakeshore Microgreens…they deliver !!! If you haven’t tried microgreens, I highly suggest you give them a try! You can get them at local grocery store, local farmers, or even grow them yourself! Once you try microgreens, you will never go back!! This particular sandwich here is topped with broccoli microgreens! Absolutely delicious ! Here are some of the benefits of microgreens!

I know what your thinking. First of all….what is ‘mesh’ pepper. I had to google it myself the first time I made a recipe that called for it. The US MESH size is a standard unit of measure. This unit of measure determines the number of holes that exist is a standard US Sieve. The larger the mesh number, the finer the pepper becomes. This 16 MESH pepper has been my favorite!!
