Spicy Tuna Salad

Spicy Tuna Salad

When I looked through my kitchen window this morning as coffee was dripping down in my mug, I thought it’s going to rain.

Gray clouds surrender the sky and it was rather dark but pretty enjoyable to just sit and look at the birds flying around and making beautiful noises.

I usually go outside with my cup of Joe and it was comfortable and very peaceful morning, even with only a few hours of sleep that I had.

Smell and taste of coffee and morning crisp air always wakes me up and gives that feeling of calmness; I connect with my thoughts, plan my day, go over schedule and write down some things that are on my mind.

I love to write even though I am not very good at it, but I try. It is almost the same as if you give me a microphone and I start to sing! Then the sun just came out…out of nowhere! Le sigh! I wanted rain!!!

Spicy Tuna Salad

It was kind of day made for rain. If you didn’t notice before I really love rainy days! I love just to listen and relax while it’s pouring outside, Yiruma radio on Pandora is usually in the background, a book in my hands and of course coffee or a cup of tea is right next to me. I would say that is my perfect morning or evening.

When I have a really crazy busy day I make this Tuna salad. It is a quick fix, and my kiddos like it, at least my oldest two. Do I really call it a recipe? Well, nah! But, today, I will call it “the crazy easy short-cut meal”…we all do it, right? Precooked chicken? Takeouts? Leftovers?

Whatever saves me a time man, I am all over it! From time to time I add some cooked beans in it…very good combo with tuna.

What is your #1 short-cut meal? I would really love to know…

Recipe Notes

I love tuna, and I love to dress it up especially with I just wrote in the ingredient list. One of my personal favorites is from Starkist tuna from a pouch.

Now you have so many options and you can already get spicy, or lemon flavored tuna etc. but to tell you honestly I like it plain and I add what I like.
