I make it pretty often to be one of those in-between meals or if I run out of ideas or if I just need to turn off my creative juices. It’s packed with veggies and protein (tuna is brain food, after all).
You can also put so many different, creative spins on it, depending on your tastes and what you are in the mood for. Add another type of veggies (carrots work great! to it, change the spices (try curry or something spicy), swap out the mayonnaise for Greek yogurt to make it healthier, or even swap the tuna and make it a chicken salad.
