Asian Tuna Salad ~ Bento #159

by The ROXX Box on August 19, 2014

in General

Tuna fish salad is a staple in my house.  I eat it on bread, with crackers, or on a bed of lettuce.  It is so easy to make, and everyone has their own favorite tuna salad variation.

This week, I decided to put an asian spin on my favorite tuna salad recipe.  I added roasted peanuts, fresh cilantro, ginger, and Kozlowski Spicy Cilantro & Citrus Dressing, to jazz it up.  If you haven’t tried Kozlowski Farms products, you are truly missing out.  They sell some AMAZING products, and I love everything I have received and tried from that company.

I knew I wanted to have my tuna salad for lunch, so decided to make it into a sandwich.

On a whole grain bread, I added havarti cheese, lettuce, slice tomatoes, and my asian tuna fish salad.

Asian Tuna Salad in Lunchbots Trio

My sandwich was so good, I decided to pack it for lunch the next day in my Lunchbots Trio lunch box.

Asian Tuna Fish Salad 

(2) 5oz cans water packed tuna, drained
finely chopped red onions
sliced scallions
ginger powder (@1tsp or more)
freshly chopped cilantro
chopped roasted peanuts
1/2 cup mayo (can use low fat)
sesame oil
2+ Tbsps Kozlowski Spicy Cilantro & Citrus dressing
salt/pepper

Directions:
In a bowl add first 6 ingredients. In another bowl add mayo, sesame oil, salt/pepper, and dressing. Adjust flavors as needed. Pour “some” of the dressing mix into the bowl containing tuna fish and mix. Add more dressing if needed. Refrigerate remaining dressing (great to drizzle on salads). Garnish tuna fish with extra chopped cilantro before serving with bread/crackers.

Enjoy!!

These asian chicken meatballs are so delicious.  I make them all time.  Perfect to eat as is, with rice, or as a sub sandwich.

Asian Chicken Meatballs

After making my meatballs, I toss them in a sweet and tangy asian BBQ type sauce and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.

I decided to eat them with a spinach salad.

Asian Chicken Meatball Sub in Easylunchboxes

Another way I love eating my asian chicken meatballs, is as a sub sandwich. I just top with a tangy coleslaw salad, and it is perfect. I also packed my asian chicken meatball sub in my Easylunchbox, alongside some mixed fruit, mini Babybel cheese, and WOATS Cookies ‘n’ Dreams oatsnack.

I hope this has inspired you to make your own amazing meatball lunch.

Enjoy!!

Are you are salmon fan?  For me it is hit or miss.  Sometimes I LOVE it, and other times not so much.  It really depends on how it is prepared.  I tend to love it marinated in some type of asian sauce, then grilled or broiled.  If it is too oily, I tend to not […]
