Since I am old enough to remember, summers were spent by the beach/pool, eating tuna sandwiches. Or chicken salad depending on my mother’s mood and if we were going to get ice cream after! I have taken up this summer tradition with a little twist. I love my tuna sweet and spicy and discovered that if I use a little heat with the spices and add a little cool fruit flavor, I have the most delicious, satisfying summer bite. It’s perfect for when we come out of the water literally famished and will eat anything and everything! I love this tuna salad with pears particularly for its sweet subtle flavor and softer bite, but feel free to sub with apples if you prefer a crunchier texture.
Prepare the Tuna Fruit Bites
1. In a bowl, combine tuna, mayonnaise, and spices.
2. Gently fold in carrots and blueberries.
3. Assemble at pool side. Enjoy sliced pears with a dollop of tuna on top.
