My Simple and Delicious Tuna Dip is creamy, full of flavour and takes just minutes to prepare! When homemade is this easy and tasty, there is no need for shop bought dip. Best of all, when preparing from scratch, you will know exactly what goes into your food, and you can adjust the flavours to your liking.
I mention in my recipe for Tuna and Potato Patties that canned tuna is a pantry staple in my household!
Therefore, this Simple and Delicious Tuna Dip is something that I can easily prepare anytime.
To prepare, the dip really is as simple as the title suggests – and I promise you, it is delicious to eat, too!
I begin by draining the can of tuna, to remove the excess oil or water. My preference for this dip is to use tuna in oil, as I feel it has greater flavour. I add the drained tuna to a small blender, along with the remaining ingredients. These are a good quality whole egg mayonnaise, parsley, spring onion, cayenne pepper and lemon zest. Blend until your ingredients are well combined, and you have achieved a smooth consistency.
Serve the dip in a bowl, and garnish with parsley, spring onion and capers.
