Cooktop Cove: How to make Low carb tuna pickle boats
By Kate Elliott
These low carb tuna pickle boats are not only incredibly delicious, they're also a super cute way to serve a beloved lunchtime sandwich. In the recipe that follows, all you have to do is make a simple tuna salad (without pickles, unless you really love them!) and then stuff them into pickle boats. It's so easy and tuna and pickles really are best friends so it's a match made in heaven.
Those pickle boats are really easy to make, too. You just have to slice a pickle in half, scoop out the seeds, and there you have it. You just made a pickle boat! You do want to use relatively large pickles, so you can get all that tasty tuna inside. But if you can only find small ones, just use those and eat more of them!
