This recipe is awesome and so versatile. This “tuna salad” can be used so many different ways and you can dress it up as you wish.
If you enjoy spice don’t be afraid to add a little Sriracha. If you wish there was more of a mayo type flavor feel free to use my Raw Vegan Mayo recipe found here.
This recipe can be enjoyed:
- On a salad
- In lettuce wraps
- In a brown rice wrap
- In a nori wrap
- As a dip using fresh veggies for dipping
This recipe can be used for lunch, supper or a snack.
For lunch when I use this as a salad I really enjoy adding some grapes for sweetness.
