This High-Protein Tuna Salad recipe simple to make. Tuna is SO GOOD FOR YOU! It’s on my top 5 foods that won’t break the budget. It’s something that you should regularly stock in your pantry. Healthy living and eating should not have to be overly complicated nor overly expensive, and tuna is one of those ingredients that prove it.
Part of the reason it is so good for you is that in an entire can of tuna there are about 35 grams of protein and only 150 calories! It also provides a good amount of iron, vitamin D, niacin, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12. There are not many foods with that profile!
High-Protein Tuna Salad Recipe
Recipe by: Annessa Chumbley, RD
Prep time: 5 minutes; Total time: 5 minutes
- 1 (5 ounces) can of water-packed tuna
- 1 cup chopped bell pepper
- 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup mayo
- A squeeze of 1/2 lemon
- 2 tablespoons fresh dill
- 2 tablespoons fresh basil
- 2 tablespoons dried currants
- In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients. (If you are not a fan of the dried currants or can’t find them, feel free to leave them out. I like a sweet bite in my tuna salad, and this combination was so amazing. But leaving them out would be good too).
- Enjoy tuna scooped onto a fresh garden tomato, or a bed of lettuce. Yum!
