Tuna Fish Ranch Dressing Salad


Necessity is the mother of invention. If you're out of mayo, give a try mixing some ranch dressing into your tuna fish! It ends up a tasty treat with some new flavors.

Ingredients:
1 can tuna fish
2 Tbsp ranch dressing
10 olives
1 Tbsp capers
freshly ground black pepper
fresh dill

Drain the water out of the tuna fish can. Put the tunafish into a bowl. Add in the ranch dressing, olives, capers. Crunch the black pepper on top. Add in some fresh dill.

Enjoy! You can have this on its own, as a side to a nice lettuce salad, along with cottage cheese, or in many other ways.

If you aren't growing dill on your windowsill, I highly recommend starting right away. Dill is extremely easy to grow in windows. Simply plant some seeds and in a few weeks you'll have fresh dill available 24 hours a day. You pluck off the top fronts and sprinkle them on tuna and salads. Here's a photo of my dill on my back porch -

Choosing Tuna
Remember when eating tuna that you should always go with light tuna rather than albacore. Albacore tuna can have up to three times the mercury as light tuna does. You want to eat tuna once or twice a week to get those healthy fish oils into you - your body can process that level of mercury. You don't want to be eating tuna every day, though! Everything in moderation. Just like water is good for you - but you don't want to try to live on a diet of water and nothing else!

Nutrition
Tuna fish has zero carbs in it. Really, the main carb provider here is the ranch dressing. I've reviewed many different types of ranch dressing on my site, or simply go to your store and find the one with the lowest number of carbs in it. Pretty much the carb count of this dish is going to depend on how many tablespoons of ranch you end up putting into your dish. Adjust it to meet your own taste desires!

What are Capers?
Capers are tasty little buds of a bush, that are usually served pickled. Give them a try!
