|1/4 cup||Red onion (minced)|
|1/3 cup||Dill pickles (diced)|

1. Blend the soaked almonds and sunflower seeds in a food processor until finely minced (the finer the better). Transfer into a bowl.
2. Add the celery, onion, pickles, herbs, lemon juice, agave, kelp, salt and pepper to nut/seed mixture and stir thoroughly. Set aside.
3. Scoop generously over a bed of greens, or to make a sandwich, spread Dijon mustard on cabbage, chard, or rye bread. Add butter lettuce and tomato.
4. Using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, scoop a generous helping of “tuna” on each slice of bread (or cabbage/chard leaves if you decide to make it raw).
5. Finish with more black pepper, lettuce, and tomato.
