So we all love us some tuna salad. Classic, delicious, flavorful tuna salad. Fantastic food, total go-to food for lunch. Every family has their own special recipe and takes pride in it. Totally love that. What I don’t like is the unhealthiness of the classic tuna salad. I, like so many people, try to eat healthy and stay in shape; and that jar of mayonaise just isn’t part of that 🙂 So I try to put healthy twists on foods I like. Here I took a family recipe for tuna salad and made it healthier without losing any of the awesome taste, as I find. It’s full of protein and fiber but only has little fat.
Here’s what you need:
1 can tuna (in water, not oil)
1 small apple (or 1/2 a large apple; my favorite is Pink Lady)
2-3 stalks of celery
1 small onion
1 hardboiled egg
1 tsp mayonaise
1/2 cup plain yogurt
Cut the onion and the egg in very small cubes; cut the apple in small cubes. For the celery, cut it in half lengthwise and then chop it in small pieces. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper. Done!
Super fast, super easy, super delicious! You may find that apple in tuna salad sounds weird but give it a shot and you’ll see it’s delicious. The sweetness and juiciness of the apple goes perfectly with the other flavors. Enjoy!
