Cashew Raisin Tuna Salad Sandwich

Happy Sunday lovelies!

How is your week going? I hope you have all been having a splendid, well-relaxed week. If not, I hope that you can find it in your day to create some time for peace and relaxation for yourself. It's easy to get sucked into working toward future career & life goals and forget about enjoying the present. Reward yourself with a breezy walk in the park, meditation, a cup of tea, or a chat with a friend you haven't heard from for awhile. Life's too short not to enjoy the present. If you are stressed or frustrated or annoyed or angry or any negative emotion, let it go because happiness is just a mindset away~ :)

Today, I want to share with you my spin on the well-loved, tuna salad sandwich. This was the meal I relied on all of summer school. Especially with the crunch and butteriness from the cashews and the sweetness from the onions and raisins, it's delicious! It's pretty basic with no cooking required so, to all my fellow college kids out there, this is a fail-proof recipe that you should definitely try out! 

Tuna Salad Sandwich

Prep time: 3 minutes

1 can of tuna in water, drained (gives ~4 oz tuna)
1 tbsp plain Greek yogurt or mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Dash of black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/5 medium onion, chopped
1/2 small celery stalk, chopped
1/4 cup cashews
1/2 small box raisins (.75 oz)
4 slices of whole grain bread
Lettuce, as desired (optional)

1. Mix tuna with Greek yogurt, mustard, black pepper and cayenne pepper.
2. Mix in onion, celery, cashews, and raisins.
3. Slab it onto 2 slices of bread with lettuce (optional). 

Enjoy! I also like to make lettuce wraps with this tuna salad recipe! :) Both are delicious, easy, and protein-packed meals ready in minutes.
