How to Stretch a Can of Tuna Fish
I'm old enough to remember when cans of tuna fish were 7 ounces. Today they are five ounces. Some years ago I devised a way to stretch a can to make it go further.
Here's my method:
Gather whatever vegetables you have on hand; my standards are onion, carrot, celery, bell peppers (whatever color) and broccoli.
Chop each veggie as fine as you can:
Mix them in a bowl:
Add the tuna and some mayonnaise (or your choice of white salad dressing stuff):
Mix it all together and serve on bread for sandwiches or with crackers (when you forgot to get the bread out of the freezer that morning).
This batch made 2 cups (500 ml), so at 1/4 cup per sandwich, this would make 8 sandwiches; six sandwiches if you spread it a little thicker. Way better than one or two sandwiches per can; plus all those tasty, healthful veggies!
