Tuna Salad Cucumber Canoes

Oh, I am so excited to tell you about this recipe!

I love tuna salad sandwiches, but since I am trying to cut the carbs I decided to change the bread for cucumbers (because I had them in the fridge and wanted something different)

The only thing I missed was celery because I didn't have any. Boo :(

I added the apples to give it a kick of fresh and sweet/sour flavor to the salad. I remember, when I was a kid, I used to taste apples in the potato salad served during the holidays in Puerto Rico. I used to hate it because I always confused the apple squares with potatoes, and you know that feeling when you have something in mind and you taste it and it is something different? Well, I hated to bite a sweet and crunchy "potato" while I was expecting a soft and salty one. 

Anyway, I got the idea from there. And I should have added more, because I loved the green apple in this salad! 

I am extremely satisfied with how it turned out, and how it tasted even without the celery. I was left craving for more! 

This is a simple and easy lunch recipe, you just mix all ingredients and serve on top of cucumber canoes or eat it however you want to! Even alone, it is just delicious!

Here is what you need:

half of a cucumber
1 can (6 oz) tuna (in oil or water, your preference)
1/4 of a granny smith apple cut into small squares
1 TBSP red onion, chopped
2 TBSP mayonnaise
salt & pepper to taste

1. Peel and cut the cucumber by half, remove the seeds to create the canoes and set aside.
2. In a small bowl add tuna, apple squares, onion, mayonnaise, the cucumber seeds if you wish and mix together. Season with salt an pepper to taste.
3. Scoop the tuna salad over the cucumber canoes and serve. 

Enjoy! :)
