Korean Yellowfin Tuna Salad

This Korean Yellowfin Tuna Salad is delicious! It is great to make on its own or out of leftovers! Either way this recipe will be a hit!

This yellowfin tuna salad is full of flavor and is NOT your typical tuna salad. This tuna salad is more exciting!

You can eat this like a normal tuna salad sandwich or on top of your favorite salad or with crackers. HOWEVER… I believe the best way is to make up some white rice and top a piece of seaweed with the rice and the tuna! *Chef’s kiss* I had this multiple days in a row for lunch! I could not get enough of it!

This is a great recipe going into the New Year as well if you are looking to eat healthier. Replace the mayo with a low-fat mayo and up the seasonings and you have a healthier recipe! Serve in the seaweed like I suggested or as lettuce wraps! The options are endless.

I hope y’all enjoy this recipe as much as we did! Happy cooking!
