Tasty Tuna Salad

With 15g of protein and 3g of fat per serving tuna is an amazing source of lean protein.  Although canned tuna has gotten a bad rap lately, if you pick the right type and don’t consume more than 2 cans per week you can eat this delightful snack with little to no guilt.  I love making this for a quick lunch because it only takes 10 minutes maximum to prep.  


Ingredients:
  • 1 can light chunk tuna in water
  • 1 tbsp light mayo or Greek yogurt
    • If you are dairy/egg free substitute with olive oil or miso paste
  • 1 tsp grainy mustard
  • ½ an apple 
  • Fresh chopped cilantro (as much or as little as you like!)
  • Juice from ½ a soft fresh lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:
  1. Drain the tuna and lightly pre-flake in a bowl
  2. Add all other ingredients and mix - add more of whatever you like to taste.
  3. Eat alone or over a bed of spinach, with brown rice crisps, topped on cucumbers, wrapped in lettuce wraps, or on your favourite whole grain bread.

Enjoy!
