Gluten Free Tuna Salad for Junk Food Lovers

Greens are so essential to good health and yet most of us Americans rarely eat salad; it’s almost a curse to offer someone salad, even in California, land of the healthy hippies. A good percentage of people I know will refuse salad when I offer it to them, including my dear sweet mother!

Growing up on sweets, processed foods, and carbs, I was a mess by the time I reached my 20s.

If it were not for the fact that I get these Organic Farm Fresh boxes delivered to my house, I probably would eat very little green salad, even though I know it is good for me and I feel immediately better in body and spirits.

Rarely do I buy greens because they go bad so quickly. With my home delivery of fresh farm foods, to respect the money I have spent, and to respect my body, I try to force myself to eat the greens each day until they are gone. I also soak the stems in water bowls so they will last longer.

The salad pictured here is a creation based on my forced (by choice) greens supply.


— The SALAD is butter lettuce (my favorite), green lettuce (of some sort), radicchio (has bitter kick), and sliced red onions. Wash everything and make sure there is no dirt (which causes diarrhea) or wilted slimy rotten parts. Cut it up bite size.

SALAD DRESSING is an easy delicious creation I made:

    • Squirt of Mustard
    • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
    • 1 Tablespoon of fresh squeezed Lemon *
    • 1 Tablespoon of Balsamic Vinegar *
*You can use just one of the Lemon or the Vinegar, tastes great with just one or both.
You can also add a few dashes of salt, pepper, or garlic if you like; tastes good with or without.
Put your chosen salad dressing ingredients into a small recycled glass jar and shake it up until fully blended. Use a spoon to distribute evenly on the salad.

TUNA SALAD SCOOP is made with one drained can of tuna and an enormous heaping forkful of Lemonaise, mixed together until creamy smooth.

Even for people who love eating junk food, I promise you, this salad will please you. It’s really good and may inspire further salad eating.
