That is, yesterday you were eating your sandwiches by both cheeks, but today it’s better not to open a cup of salad because there is a risk of indigestion.
Finding out how to store tuna salad correctly!
In general, it’s better not to stretch such a yummy for a long time. Eat it right away! But if for some reason you decide to leave it the next day, then choose an airtight container.
The main reason that tuna goes missing for most people is that it cannot be stored simply in the refrigerator, it needs an airtight space inside the container. Then you can save it for 3-5 days!
And without a refrigerator, things will be even worse. If you’re not in Alaska, then it’s simply impossible to keep it at room temperature for more than 2 hours. Bacteria begin to grow too quickly, and the tuna turns into a chemical weapon.
If you’re not sure whether you can eat the salad or not already – better not. Refrain from the risk of contracting indigestion.
In general, meat and fish are perishable, so it’s best to store them in the coldest part of the refrigerator. You can add a little lemon juice or vinegar to them to help prolong their life.
Another option is to freeze them. But if you defrost them once, there will be no way back!
Other foods tend to be stored longer. If you have not opened the package with the dish, it can be stored for a whole week.
Tuna salad definitely shouldn’t be stored in the freezer. But not even because of the tuna, but because of the eggs. They lose their beneficial properties, taste, and color.
As you already understood, it’s better not to risk your health and not eat tuna salad after 2 hours outdoors and 5 days in the refrigerator, even if it looks quite good on the outside.
