I know I’ve mentioned it a lot, but Kaitlyn (14 months) is a petite little thing. She’s growing and healthy, but I always take into consideration getting her the biggest calorie and nutrient-dense bang for each bite when I plan her meals (like I wrote about here).
Recently I discovered that she loves tuna salad and I was thrilled! Full of healthy fats and protein, it’s great option to make and share with her at lunch time.
I used to just mash all the ingredients together until the somewhat incorporated, but now I’ve discovered a ridiculously quick and easy way to put tuna fish salad on her plate in under three minutes.
I use the entire can of tuna plus 1 Tbsp each of mayo and relish when I’m making it for just me, but when I make it for Kaitlyn I end up making it closer to 2 Tbsp each of mayo and relish. I toss the ingredients in my mixer with the paddle attachment then switch it to medium speed.
In less than 15 seconds, the tuna salad is mixed well and at perfect consistency.
Are you a tuna fish salad fan?
What do you put in yours?
What are some creative ways that you use your mixer?
