Save the "Tuna" Salad
Health Highlights


1 cup whole Almonds, raw (soaked overnight in water)
1 cup hulled Sunflower seeds (soaked overnight in water)
1/3 cup diced Celery (minced)
1/4 cup Red onion (minced)
1/3 cup Dill pickles (diced)
3 tbsp Lemon juice
1 tbsp Agave nectar (syrup)
2 tbsp Kelp (kombu, tangle) seaweed, raw (granules *optional)
2 tbsp Dill, fresh (minced)
1 tsp Oregano, fresh (minced)
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Black pepper (to taste)
8 large leaf Lettuce, butterhead (Boston)
4 slice Mixed-grain bread (toasted)
1 medium Tomato (sliced)
1 tsp Dijon mustard (to taste)


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.
