Tuna Salad Recipe
Hi Everyone, you would be amazed how useful it is to have a Tuna Salad Recipe in your back pocket. Need something quick to whip up for lunch: Tuna Salad. Feeling lazy for dinner: Tuna Salad, maybe made into Tuna Melts. Need something to bring to that BBQ or Summer holiday? Well most people like Tuna Salad, so that’s easy!
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.
