Paleo Tuna Veggie Bowls



I have a pretty strict no-cooking-when-it’s-over-90-degrees rule, so this summer I’ve been eating a lot of quick and easy salads that come together in a pinch. The problem with salads, as I’m sure you know, is that they can get really boring. This one is different–I put just a little lettuce in a bowl and then load it with sliced radishes, julienned cucumbers, sugar snap peas, cucumber noodles, and any other fresh veggies I might have in my fridge before topping the whole thing with a can of tuna.

You could serve this salad with my Paleo sesame vinaigrette, but I also like it with just a drizzle of sesame oil and a teaspoon of Thai chili garlic paste–pretty much the same ingredients without taking the extra minute or two to mix them together first.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Servings: Serves 1-2

Ingredients

1 5-ounce can of Bumble Bee Solid White Albacore Tuna
1 cup of lettuce, chopped
1-2 radishes, sliced thinly
1/2 of a large cucumber, spiralized or julienned
1 medium carrot, julienned
5-6 sugar snap peas, sliced
1-2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
1-2 slices or wedges of fresh lime
1/4 of an avocado, sliced
A drizzle of sesame oil
1 teaspoon (more or less depending on heat preference) of Thai chili garlic paste
Sesame seeds, for garnish
Salt and pepper, to taste


Directions

In a bowl, layer veggies over lettuce and top with drained tuna. Season with salt and pepper, then dress the salad with a little sesame oil. Serve with a small spoonful of Thai chili garlic paste and top with avocado, cilantro, and sesame seeds. Serve with fresh lime wedges.


A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
