Raw "tuna" salad

I do love the fall.  Pumpkins, spices, baking, Halloween(my favorite), scary movies. What are some of your favorites?

I finally made a raw "tuna" salad.  I don't know if it's because my tastebuds have changed or that I really wanted it to taste like tuna.  I was very pleasantly surprised.   
This is the mixture in a bowl.  I made a wrap for Dave using this mixture, avocado, lettuce, tomato and Miso Mayo.  

Raw "Tuna" sushi roll. 
There are quite a few versions of the Raw"Tuna" Salad recipe out there but this is how I made mine.

Raw "Tuna" Salad

1/2 C. raw sunflower seeds, soaked 6 hrs or more
1/3 C. raw almonds, soaked 6 hrs or more
2 T. lemon juice
1 T. water 
3 T. carrots, shredded or finely diced
2 T. celery, finely diced
2 T. green onion, finely sliced
1/4 tsp salt or more to taste
1/2 tsp. dill, dried  (optional)

In  a food processor blend until quite smooth sunflower seeds, almonds, lemon juice, water and salt.  In another bowl add carrots, celery, green onion and dill.  Add the seed and nut mixture into veggie mixture.  Stir to combine. 

I read that if you wanted to you could add a little mayo to it if you wanted it more tuna style.  But I don't think you need to.


  1. That "tuna" sushi roll is so pretty, and the raw tuna mix sounds really good.

    I don't like scary movies, but I do love fall and Halloween!

  2. That roll looks amazing!!! I just love everything Fall! I am so glad my baby will be born during my favorite season!

  3. I love that cat in your pic! Halloween candy! The cooler weather! Don't like scary movies. I like the raw tuna roll! :-)

  4. That cat is adorable!
    I love that it's nearly Halloween! That roll looks so good - and reminds me I haven't made a raw tunaesque salad in ages. Sounds yummy.

  5. we usually make a tuna-free salad with chickpeas, but i can't wait to try your raw version, JoLynn! and miso mayo sounds super delicious! i'm soooooo excitedfaced for fall as well. i too love everything about it - the changing leaves, the crisp air, and all the fall veggies for roasting! yay!

  6. Dave doesn't like scary movies either. He creeps out just hearing scary music coming from the t.v.! I'm glad my son has followed me in my love of the scary movies.

    Jessy-chickpea sald is one of our fav's as well along with tempeh salad too!

  7. Hey I just ran across your blog-cute!

    I love falls colors-the tress turning, and of course jumping into leaf piles!

  8. I must try this sushi recipe. It looks awesome!

  9. I could go for sushi any day of the week, so I've gotten bored of the standard veggie varieties. The idea of a "tuna" salad roll is brilliant, I'm definitely trying it asap!

  10. I am all over this..and I love the fishy seafood flavours. Could you fed ex me that sushi roll...lol I am prob the only vegan that loves seaweed smelling dishes everyday

  11. I love me some raw sushi and that looks mighty divine!
