My favorite tuna salad recipe. I often add more veggies or swap things out based on what I have on hand (mushrooms and green onions, shallots and minced garlic, etc). High in protein, this is a perfect lunch that will keep you full for hours.

Recipe Ingredients for Awesome Tuna Salad

1 can albacore tuna in water
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp Hellmann's mayonnaise
2 tbsp red onion (diced)
2 tbsp bell pepper (diced)
1 tsp fresh parsley
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp hot sauce
1/4 tsp pepper

Recipe Directions for Awesome Tuna Salad

  1. Drain tuna.

  2. Mix all ingredients together.

  3. Add salt and pepper to taste (though I find that the mayo adds enough salt).

  4. Serve on slice of wheat toast or your favorite bread or cracker, or skip the carb's and eat the whole can on three slices of romaine lettuce, rolled up into veggie wraps!

  5. Makes two servings.
