Some other summer dishes to try
This is sort of an upgraded tuna salad, tossed with sweet corn and green beans. The dressing is similar to elotes (Mexican street corn), using lime, mayo, yogurt, olive oil, and parmesan. This dish is sure to "wow" some guests, or yourself!
What makes this dish so easy to prepare is that it uses both frozen corn and green beans as well canned tuna, so there is no cooking involved. It comes together in only about 15 minutes. Although if you have the grill going already, an elevated version with some grilled corn on the cob and green beans wouldn't be bad either!
For the tuna, I recommend getting a decent quality can of solid white albacore. Pre-flaked tuna tends to be a bit fishier tasting and has a more soggy texture. Plus with solid tuna you can decide how chunky or shredded you want it, I like keeping about half of the can as big chunks and mashing up the rest!
What to serve with tuna and corn salad
This is a great recipe to use up any leftovers with too! The dressing goes well on pretty much anything, feel free to switch up to canned salmon or even chicken. Or maybe swap the corn out for peas and carrots.
