Great idea Thank you! - It never occurred to me to mix Quinoa with Tuna. Also- make sure to rinse the Quinoa a few times before cooking to ensure there is no bitter taste. It has to do with a protective coating/residue called saponin.
This is a great recipe to play with. I changed out several ingredients, except for the tuna, quinoa, lemon juice and mayonnaise. I didn't have any wasabi powder so I added grape tomatoes, shredded apple and carrots. I didn't have celery either so I used some celery seed, which was tasty. Then the best addition, I chopped a small handful of walnuts and threw that in. It all tasted wonderful together! I find that quinoa is becoming a staple in my kitchen and this is one more recipe I will add to my list.
Awesome delicious imaginative different flavorful...the list of adjectives goes on. This is truly a great tuna salad recipe. I cooked the quinoa traditionally boiling vs. microwave. Because hubby and I like bold flavor doubled the wasabi and upped the lemon a little. Absolutely incredible...makes me want to play with chicken salad with a dash of wasabi...etc. Many kudos and thanks!!!
HATE Wisabi...that aside this was an awsome idea. I added a few shakes or cayene pepper doubled the onion and celery added 1/2 c shredded carrot. Left the Mayo the same but used the juice from a whole lemon from my tree (would be awsome with lime too) Used this to stuff low cal pita halves for lunch. With the extra veg I get a bit healthier meal and stretch this to 3 or 4 servings rather than just 2.
OMG this was so good. Didn't have Wasabi powder no celery and can't eat onions but I sauted julienned zucchini and chopped carrot adding in onion powder and the other ingredients. Served it hot not cold. Wow! Was soooo good and filling.
This was awesome... tastes like a great pasta salad but healthier!! I didn't change a thing and don't think it needs anything more or less. I always use the olive oil mayo as it is fairly low in fat but still has a good mayonnaise taste. Thanks Caron. I never would have thought to put this together!
I thought this was a delicious recipe. I used double the tuna and a little more mayo to moisten. Plus I added some dill weed which I always use for tuna salad. It was fabulous and tasted just as good if not better after a couple of days. I used stuffed in a pita with sprouts and diced tomatoes. Yummy and very filling!
I followed the recipe exactly as written. Something about this just doesn't work - it might be the combination of lemon juice and the wasabi powder? It was a little better after sitting overnight but still tasted like something a very inexperienced cook might concoct with whatever is on hand.
The wasabi was a BRILLIANT idea...I'm constantly looking for different quinoa recipes (this superfood is extremely understated)...thanks Caron I'm now able to add another great quinoa recipe to my arsenal!
