Last time I had tuna, I had it as a sweet potato tuna melt. I mixed the tuna with cottage cheese and salsa, put it on top of half a baked sweet potato, topped it with mozzarella, and then broiled it for a few minutes.
This sounds really interesting! I have a recipe for black bean and sweet potato burritos that sounds like an odd combination (black beans, sweet potatoes, a bit of peanut butter and spices, with cilantro and salsa in a tortilla) but is delicious. And I think the same principal is likely going here. I am going to try this one.

With FF Mayo, diced pineapple, fresh parsley, red onion, salt and pepper. SO GOOD.

My cafeteria at work makes them like this and it's addictive. (I'm in a hospital and it's all really healthy food they serve. As soon as you try to buy unhealthy it gets more expensive. It's pretty incredible.)

I dice up some egg whites and part of an apple, mix it in with a little garlic powder, olive oil mayo, and some smoked pepper. Instead of bread, I put it on top of cucumber or tomato slices. Yum! That's what I had for lunch!

First I squirt the very dried out tuna (I squish it to death with a paper towel) with lemon. Then I mix mine with half an avocado, chopped onions, grape tomatoes, sometimes a few olives, and lettuce. It's SO good, I'll eat it as a salad and sometimes crumble a couple of WASA breadcrisps. Yum!

I like it with a little light mayo, petite peas, diced up dill pickles and some pickle juice mixed in... I LOVE pickles!!! I will often then wrap the tuna in romaine lettuce leaves and eat them like sandwich wraps... YUM!

I mix up a packet of tuna with half an avocado and a tablespoon of bacon bits, on a toasted bread thin or bagel thin. It sounds/looks sort of disgusting but it tastes amazing!

If you like yellow mustard, try mixing canned tuna with mustard instead of mayo. It holds it together and tastes great. I eat it with just a spoon or on whole grain english muffins.

If I mix it with a little mayo and some sweet relish I can just eat it with a fork!

But my other favorite thing to eat it with is the Silver Hills Little Big Bread, two slices is 110 calories! I just take two slices, lay down a slice of cheese, top it with tuna and put it in the oven for about 12 minutes at around 400 degrees. It's a pretty good tuna melt and not all bad for you.

My other favorite thing is to put it in pasta. I like to use brown rice noodles, mix in a tblsp of olive oil, a can of drained tuna, a serving or two of feta crumbles and it's really good! At least I like it, but I love tuna to death and I could eat it right out of the can, drained of course.

I love tuna with some broccoli and pasta (egg noodles preferably, just tastes better for some reason) along with some garlic and parmesan cheese. Mmm! I also like it in macaroni and cheese, lol. You really only need a spoonful or two (less than 1/4 cup) of the mac n cheese then bulk it up with tuna and veggies.

I just realized it has been too long since I last had tuna. I may have to make some for lunch tomorrow thanks to this thread.
