How to Make Easy Tuna Spread


  1. Line a 2-cup metal bowl or mold with plastic wrap.
  2. Place all ingredients in blender or food processor; cover and blend on high speed until smooth. Spread mixture in bowl.
  3. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours. Carefully unmold onto serving plate.
  4. Serve with Jicama sticks, cucumber slices and low-sodium crackers that make great companions to this tasty spread. When alone, I just make a sandwich using pumpernickle bread. Yummy!
