Healthy Rainbow Tuna Salad
The best tuna salad for two, and no need for mayo…that’s true! 😉 Did I just rhyme? Haha!
I know it can be controversial to call tuna healthy, but healthy is different for everyone. And for me, whenever I’m eating a salad that is balanced with protein, fiber and good fats, with low or no sugar added and no saturated fats, it’s a healthy meal for me. So this Healthy Rainbow Tuna Salad is a fabulous one that will keep you feeling full and satisfied from having salad for dinner! I had some extra time on my hands and love playing around with my food, so I made this dish extra pretty for the hubby and I. The design part is purely optional, but hope it inspires you to add more colorful foods to your diet and enjoy salads as meal!
