Tuna, Spinach, and Quinoa Salad

Tuna Salad

Tuna, Spinach, and Quinoa Salad can be a delicious part of your January reset.

This salad has just enough spice to be interesting, and not so much that you wish you hadn’t eaten it and start digging around for a mint. The Everything but the Bagel Seasoning truly transforms the tuna into something you might wind up craving.

Ingredients: 

1 teaspoon minced shallot
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
5 ounce can of tuna, packed in water, drained
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
½ tablespoon grainy mustard
1 teaspoon Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Seasoning (or another “everything bagel” seasoning)
Handful of baby spinach leaves
¼ cup cooked quinoa
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon roasted pepitas

Recipe directions: 

In a small bowl, mix together the shallot and lemon juice. Let this sit on the counter while you make the rest of the salad.

In another small bowl, using a fork, carefully mix together the tuna, mayonnaise, mustard, and Everything but the Bagel Seasoning. 

Pile the spinach on a plate. Scatter the quinoa over. Whisk the olive oil into the shallot-lemon mixture, and pour the dressing over the salad. Top with the tuna, and sprinkle the pepitas over everything.
