1 (10 ounce) package
frozen peas, thawed
1 (4 ounce) jar
sweet pickle relish
1 (9 ounce) can
solid white tuna packed in water, drained
dried dill weed
This is a great recipe for a carry-in. I substituted bacon for the tuna though. The dill is gives a great flavor!
Nice different salad. My husband didn't care for it a whole lot, I liked it but not wow enough for me to make it again.
This recipe comes together quickly. I used the boil in bag type rice, substituted red pepper for the pimento and added some dijon mustard. No need to add tuna unless you are using it as a main dish. Will make again.
This rice salad goes together quickly and tastes great!
Hey Tracey -- this was excellent! I made a couple of minor changes to use up stuff on hand. Used some leftover grilled salmon in place of the tuna and couldn't find the pimento that I know is here someplace... so I used green stuffed olives. Served as a main course on leaves of Romaine like a lettuce wrap and it was fantastic! Thank you, Tracey
Since I didn't have pimentos, I used about 1/3 cup salsa instead and omitted the mustard and relish. Turned out pretty good, not stellar. But who expects stellar from tuna, anyway?
This was a great gluten-free recipe! I would have never thought of replacing rice with noodle because of the big texture difference. However I did use brown whole grain rice rather than white rice.
I never have 9 oz. cans of tuna around, so had the fun of converting this over to a 5 oz. (I don't trust the converter here.) I think I was pretty close. I left out the pimento, which I don't care for, and finely chopped some plain pickle for the relish. Everything else as is. This was pretty good and tasted much like a tuna salad, but I liked that it was moist, unlike a lot of tuna salads. If I make again I'll probably halve the peas. I don't like peas, but they're good for me so I'll take advantage of the opportunity to get them inside me hiding in a spoonful of something else, cause they're kinda inconspicuous that way. :-) But ... too much.
