Tools you'll need

  • Medium Mixing Bowl
  • Chef’s Knife

  • Knife Work: Rinse and slice scallions or green onions into slivered rings, peel and finely chop garlic; place into mixing bowl
  • Add all remaining base Ingredients to mixing bowl (no stirring just yet)

PERSONALIZING YOUR TUNA SALAD INSTRUCTIONS

  • Knife Work: Dice your acid and/or crunch ingredients into small enough pieces to be easily eaten, but large enough to maintain texture (between ⅛ & ¼ Inches) and add to mixing bowl
  • Add any liquid ingredient you’ve selected, along with herbs & spices
  • Gently mix all ingredients together, until combined, being careful not to over-stir to keep texture and prevent mush
