Stuffed Tuna Salad
Tuna Salad is my go to lunch on a weekly basis. My father has eaten this for years & growing up I wasn't a big fan of tuna. But when I came up with this recipe, I instantly feel in love. I am a hot tuna melt-y cheese kinda girl. Place these under a broiler for a quick lunch or snack anytime. Enjoy!!!
1 (12oz) can solid white tuna in water (drained)
6 tablespoons of cream cheese
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 tablespoons diced Red Onion
1 tablespoon chives (dried works just fine)
1 tsp dill (dried works just fine)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Mix together & serve hot or cold
NOTE: The longer it sits the better it is, so if you can make it a day ahead go for it.
