Ranch Tuna Salad

When you need a quick and easy no-cook meal, this ranch tuna salad does the trick!

Normally I use chopped celery or green peppers in tuna salad, but I didn’t have any.  I did have a bag of broccoli slaw, so…why not?  It has the same crunch and the added visual appeal of multiple colors.

As I was grabbing for my tuna, I realized I had several flavors.  Since I felt like having the ranch tuna, I decided to try using ranch dressing (yogurt based) instead of mayo.  It was a total experiment, and it was delicious!

This was ready in minutes.  I started with about 1 cup of broccoli slaw, which is just a combination of shredded broccoli stalks, shredded carrots, and shredded red cabbage.

I then added 1 small pouch (2.6 oz) of ranch flavored tuna and 4 Tablespoons of Bolthouse Farms yogurt ranch dressing and mixed it all together.

That’s it! Now it’s ready to serve on your favorite bread or cracker!  I was planning to eat it as a sandwich on a Flatout Fold-It, but it was bigger than I anticipated!

I didn’t think about how much the serving would be bulked up by adding the broccoli slaw.  There was no way to fold this in half to have a typical sandwich, so I decided to have any open faced tuna salad melt!

You could easily split the tuna salad into 2 servings and be satisfied.  I was pretty stuffed after eating all of this.   😉
