Don’t you love it when you find a new mix of ingredients from your pantry/fridge that just work so well together AND is easy to put together in a meal? Oh, and is healthy? I know I do!
A couple of weeks ago, trying to replicate the delicious looking tuna salad that my sister in law made for lunch one day, I decided to take some ingredients leftover from a family brunch and make my own!
Here is what I came up with:
A Simple Tuna Salad
1 small can of albacore tuna in water
3 sliced of red pepper (about 1/4 of a whole one)
3 sliced of orange pepper (about 1/4 of a whole one)
1/6 of a medium sized cucumber
6 kalamata olives, pitted
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
salt to taste
1. Chop the red pepper, cucumber, and olives into teeny pieces and toss in a bowl.
2. Drain and rinse the tuna and separate a bit with your fork before adding to the bowl
3. Add the balsamic vinegar, salt to taste, and mix well.
Did I say simple or what? I enjoyed this on a piece of dry whole wheat toast the first time, and over a mixed greens salad the second time. I promise it is really good and doesn’t leave you feeling weighed down either!!!!
