Tuna Salad with Lime and Horseradish


Makeover: Tuna Salad

No, I’ve not gotten bored with tuna salad. I just realized I had a jar of horseradish that needs to be used ;)

Please, please do not use miracle whip or salad dressing. I tried…so you don’t have to!

  • 2 (6-ounce) cans solid white tuna in water  

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice  

  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest  

  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt  

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper  

  • 1 small rib celery , minced (about 1/4 cup) 

  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion   

  • 3 tablespoons prepared horseradish  

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves   

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise  

  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard  

Drain tuna in colander and shred with fingers until no clumps remain and texture is fine and even. Transfer tuna to medium bowl and mix in lime juice and zest, salt, pepper, celery, onion, horseradish, and parsley until evenly blended. Fold in mayonnaise and mustard until tuna is evenly moistened. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or more to let flavors blend together.
