Paleo Mayo Love

One thing I almost always have on hand is Paleo Mayo. Theres a great video on how to make it here

Both tuna and chicken salad are fantastic sources of protein, and work great for fast lunches. They are delicious perched on top of salad greens, wrapped in lettuce leaves, or just on their own. I load mine up with vegetables and mix in some homemade mayo and the result is fantastic.

What I love to do is add different spices to the mayo to take it from basic to something really special. I use a squeeze bottle, fill it with my flavored mayo, and scribble it on top of whatever I am eating. I use it on eggs, grilled chicken, tuna or chicken salad, steak. You name it, spiced up mayo takes it up a level. Try adding curry, garlic and basil, cilantro and lime…pretty much any combination you can think of will make the mayo pop. Just be sure to puree in the blender so its nice and smooth and runs well through the squeeze bottle. The bottles I use come from amazon, but these can be found in any cake decorating section or cooking store. In a pinch, a ziplock bag with the corner cut off can serve as a squeeze bottle. And if you don’t feel like channeling your inner food artist, a big blob of mayo is just as tasty!

PALEO TUNA SALAD

5 cans tuna, drained (I prefer wild planet brand and purchase from Amazon in bulk)

3/4 c home made mayo (more if you like a creamier tuna)

2 tsp lemon juice

1/2 c chopped carrots (I use matchstick and chop them up to save time)

1/2 c chopped celery

1/4-1/2 c chopped red onion

salt and pepper to taste

Empty tuna into a large mixing bowl and flake with a fork

Add veggies and mix until incorporated (little helpers can do this part)
