Healthy Tuna Salad Recipe
Contributed by: Michael Devon, NASM-CPT
Healthy Tuna Salad:
1 serving of your favorite tuna, or salmon
1/2 cucumber or pickle (or both)
1/2 carrot, finely chopped or grated
1/4 red onion
1/2 stalk of celery
1/4 cup of raisins or your favorite dried fruit
Pepper and garlic seasoning to taste
Ditch the mayo and substitute 1 avocado with 1/2 a cup of plain non-fat Greek yogurt, mix together with all ingredients until smooth. (If you’re not an avocado lover, try adding 1/4 cup of humus.)
For a quick lunch or dinner top off some Romaine or Bibb lettuce leaves with your tuna mix, now you have a healthy tuna sandwich!
Feel free to get creative and add any vegetables you want. Here are a few ideas: bell pepper, cilantro, broccoli, green peas, and cauliflower. Give it a try and share your recipes in the comments!
