Sardine Salad with Crackers

sardine saladDo you ever have one of those days that is unexpectedly stressful and hectic? I think we all do, right? Well, yesterday was one of those days for me. Work and more work, along with upcoming deadlines and the related stresses. It was just not a good day for anything too involved as far as dinner was concerned.

Such days are smaller instances where having a full pantry can be quite handy. No SHTF scenario, no crisis. Just a busy day in need of a quick dinner solution. Luckily, I had just gone to the grocery store and grabbed up a few new items that I was raring to try.  Even a small indulgence or change from the ordinary can make a world of difference in our mood. And if they’re convenient, then so much the better.

I had been reading about sardines and their nutritional benefits, and so I wanted to give them a try. As I was new to eating them, I selected a boneless and skinless variety. After doing some reading, I decided to make a quick sardine salad that could be eaten with cheese and crackers. A cool meal that would be perfect for a hurried schedule!

Although this basic recipe could be fancied up quite a bit, I just used what I had on hand. Here’s what I mixed up:

  1. 1 tin of sardines, drained and chopped
  2. 1 onion, chopped
  3. Sriracha Mayo to taste
  4. Hot mustard to taste
  5. Salt and pepper to taste

The resulting salad is easily eaten with crackers and is filling. Plus it made enough leftovers for a few meals, which is certainly a bonus.

What are your favorite ways to use sardines? Any recommendations for someone like myself who is new to eating them?
