Raw Nutty Not Tuna Salad

While tuna is a great food, you shouldn't eat it more than a few times a month due to the mercury content. This vegan "not tuna" salad makes an excellent substitute!


Prep time: 15 minutes

Soaking Time: 8 hours or more

Cooking time: 0 minutes

Yields: 4 people


1 cup almonds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1-2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 tablespoon minced dill
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon kelp granules
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 teaspoons sea salt


  1. Place almonds in a bowl, cover with water and let soak overnight. Do the same with the sunflower seeds.
  2. Discard most of the soaking water and combine nuts and seeds in a food processor or blender. Process until almost smooth.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.


  • Serve on a bed of mixed greens with vinaigrette, as a sandwich filling, or roll in a sheet of nori.
