Balsamic Tuna Salad

Share it Please
I have an obsession with balsamic vinegar. I basically put it on every thing. From veggies to meat. I haven't tried it on fruit yet but I will soon.

I also know I promised a post on revisions but I'm feeling lazy so I decided to post a recipe.

To tell the truth, I never really liked tuna salad. You know, the kind made with mayonnaise? I don't know why. I'm just strange like that. Maybe the tuna flavor was too strong? Who knows.

But this isn't very tuna-y at all. Of course, it is fish so you can taste it some, but the balsamic vinegar complements it wonderfully. Add a little bit of crunchy celery and onion and its perfect.If you don't like tuna, canned salmon would work as well. Maybe even chicken. If you try it out with something other than tuna let me know in the comments!

The balsamic dressing works on salads, too. Or just with raw veggies. Maybe even with pasta? As you can see, I have an obsession with this stuff, too. ;)

The best part about tuna salad is that it's so easy to make. Not to mention quick. It's also perfect for an on-the-go lunch if you make it ahead.

My favorite way to eat it is on a leaf of iceberg lettuce. But if you can have bread, that would work too. Or just eat it by itself!

Balsamic Dressing: 

Dash of salt and pepper
3 tsp. ground thyme
3 tsp. dried basil
3 tsp. dried oregano
3 T. olive oil
6 oz. (roughly 3/4 c.) balsamic vinegar

1. Put ingredients into a glass jar with a lid (so you can shake it). Add them in order.
2. Shake!
3. Pour on anything your heart desires. Refrigerate left-overs. The oil might harden, so it's best to put it in some warm water at least 10 minutes before using.

 Tuna Salad:

1 can of tuna
2 T. chopped celery
1 T. chopped onion
2-3 T. balsamic dressing (recipe above) 

1. Break up tuna with a fork.
2. Add all of the ingredients and stir until well combined.
3. And that's it!

Inquiry of the Day:

Do you like or loathe tuna salad?

We obviously know my feelings about it!


  1. Mmm, I LOVE balsamic vinegar. Your recipe for dressing and tuna salad sound tasty!

    You haven't tried balsamic on fruit yet? Go drizzle it over some strawberries, tasty!

    1. Thanks! The only reason I haven't tried balsamic vinegar on fruit yet is because I don't like strawberries. :\ Maybe I'll pull a bag of frozen mixed berries out of the freezer and pick out all the strawberries ;) Thanks for commenting and have a great weekend!

  2. I'm a fan of balsamic too - it is great for roasting vegetables

    1. I love adding it to roasted beets or butternut squash. It makes them taste like candy. ;) Have a great week and thanks for commenting!


I love comments so please comment often! Thanks!
