Top Rated Canned Tuna Recipes

Pan Bagnat
This crusty sandwich from the South of France tastes even better when you let it sit for a while so that the olive oil and red wine vinegar seep into the bread. You can use basil instead of dill, or experiment with adding anchovies, red onion, cucumber, or any other ingredients that call to you.

Tuna Noodle Casserole
This is my absolute, without a doubt, favorite food of all time. My mother made it for me on a weekly basis growing up and I have continued to make it for myself as often as possible since leaving her loving nest. It's comfort food at its most comforting and I love it. I adapted my mother's recipe to make it a lactose-free experience, without sacrificing any taste! Click here to see Casserole Recipe Redux

It may be a bit of a stretch to call this dish a casserole — it's not baked and it's not made in a traditional casserole dish — but that's what I grew up calling it. This no-bake tuna casserole was a staple in my house growing up (and it's still a favorite to this day), and it's the epitome of comfort food. Noodles, cheese, green peas, and tuna — doesn't get much easier (or delicious!) than that. I've made this version a tiny bit healthier by subbing in whole-grain penne and nonfat milk, but feel free to go for full-on comfort food if you want! Click here to see Casserole Recipe Redux

Canned Tuna Sandwich
OK, maybe I actually used fancy oil-packed tuna for this recipe, but canned tuna works just as well. If you decide to buy tuna stored in water, then you'll probably want to add a tablespoon or two of oil to the recipe below.  This open-faced sandwich is light, crunchy, and gets a mild hint of spice from the chile flakes. Feel free to top it with another piece of bread if you wish, but then make sure that both slices are thin so it doesn't overpower the main ingredients inside.  Click here for 8 Sweet and Savory Sandwiches.

Parsley Vinaigrette
I love bean salads with parsley. Parsley vinaigrette makes this simple salad of marinated white beans and tuna come to life. Crisp, tasty, and light, the salad makes a wonderful lunch salad or a small tapas sharing dish. If you want to really flex your cooking muscles, throw in some quick-cured lemons and you’ll be amazed at how this salad sings. Click here for the Preserved Tuna recipe. See all salad recipes.
