Mock Tuna Salad
I had given up meat for Lent, so I decided to search for some veggie recipes that’d satisfy my cravings. I didn’t have any high expectations coming into this recipe, but I was pleasantly surprised! This Mock Tuna Salad was really delicious!! Totally reminded me the flavors of tuna salad. The texture is different though, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless.
I didn’t follow the recipe exactly but used most of the same ingredients. I used a 15oz can of garbanzo beans, 4 tbs. of light mayo, 2 tbs. of light Greek yogurt, 2 stalks of celery (I like the crunch!), 3tbs. of diced onion, 1 tbs. of relish and ½ tbs. of mustard, and salt and pepper to taste.
I drained the garbanzo beans and mashed them in a bowl with a fork. I think using a blender or a food processor would be too much; mashing them with a fork gave it a nice texture.
My dad thought it was awesome, and my little sister really liked it as well. She said it reminded her of egg salad. I might add in chopped hard boiled egg next time! Really great recipe.
