Easy Backpacking Recipe: Tuna Noodler
The inspiration for this backpacking recipe comes from a roommate I had during my ski bum days. He made "Tuna Noodler" almost every day because it was really cheap, easy and tasted pretty good. I made a few modifications to the original Tuna Noodler to make it a little more easy to pack in a backpack. Check out the ingredients below.
