Whole Foods Tuna with Sun-Dried Cranberries and Lemon
2 cans solid white albacore tuna
6 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
juice from 1 fresh lemon
4 tablespoons finely chopped yellow onion
1/2 teaspoon baker's sugar
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped sun-dried cranberries (not craisins)
kosher salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients except for the tuna. Drain the tuna and add to the other ingredients. Combine gently, making sure to not overmix. (This helps keep the tuna in more solid pieces. Hey you are paying more for the solid pack white albacore.)
Lately I've been spending a small fortune on the tuna salad with cranberries at Whole Foods. I saved on of the lids with the ingredients list and then I searched for a recipe. I found one. I made this for dinner tonight. This is the best tuna salad ever. Even the picky Mr. j* likes it and he is hard to please.
Some ingredients I believe is crucial to purchase at Whole Foods and use their 365 brand. The albacore tuna you can use any brand. I bought it at Whole Foods since I was already there. The Whole Foods canola mayo is not like your Kraft or Best Foods mayo. The consistency is different. A lemon is a lemon and they simply use regular lemons. I picked up a ginormous one. I suppose you can use any type of onion for this. I had some yellow onions at home. Maybe next time I'll make it with a sweet onion. They call for unrefined sugar. I always keep baker's sugar in my pantry so I used that. It is a finer grain so it blends in faster. The salt and pepper is really not that important. The recipe calls for sea salt but I only cook with kosher so it was kosher this time around. I added a couple turns of my pepper mill. I never buy preground black pepper. The most important part - the star of the dish is the cranberries. In the bulk food section of Whole Foods is something called sun-dried unsweetened cranberries. Be careful, they also sell the sweetened cranberries.
