Sardines contain the same inflammation-taming fats as salmon but are less expensive. Pairing sardines with tuna tones down their concentrated flavor; adjust the ratio if you like a pronounced taste. For a tuna-melt twist, spread this salad on sliced whole-grain bread, sprinkle with chopped tomatoes, and broil until hot.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1/4 cup canola mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes in oil (drained)
2 tablespoons minced red onion
2 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley
1 medium clove garlic (minced)
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1 (6-ounce) can solid white tuna (drained well and flaked)
1 (4- to 5-ounce) can boneless, skinless sardines (drained and chopped)
1 cup arugula leaves
4 cups mixed salad greens
2 small Roma tomatoes (chopped)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (toasted)
In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, sun-dried tomatoes, onion, parsley, garlic, and cayenne pepper. Gently stir in tuna and sardines; season with salt and pepper.
In another bowl, toss arugula, greens, and tomatoes. Divide among four plates. Top with fish salad and walnuts.
