I like tuna salad. I just don’t like all the fat that comes along with it. For example, According to the menu at Subway, a tuna sandwich has over 400 calories and 20 grams of fat. That’s not even including cheese or additional mayo. This healthier lighter version of tuna salad is quick & easy to make. Leaving you feeling satisfied and guilt free with TONS of protein from the tuna & the nuts. If you are looking for a low fat, low carb or gluten free meal you can eat it on a bed of greens. Otherwise it is fantastic on two slices of bread or in a wrap.
This is such a healthy & satisfying tuna salad recipe. Very light on the mayo and bursting with fresh ingredients. You can use any nut you would like.. I have made this before with walnuts and it was great. I just happen to have an abundance of almonds at the moment so I am using those.
- 2 tbsp of mayo (good quality, I prefer Dukes)
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- juice of 1 lemon
- kosher or sea salt
- freshly cracked pepper
- 5oz can solid white Albacore Tuna, drained
- 1 red Apple, chopped
- 2 celery stalks, chopped
- 3-4 green onion, sliced
- 1/4 cup almonds, chopped or sliced (or any other nut of your choice)
- Whisk together the mayo, dijon, lemon juice salt & pepper until combined.
- Add the tuna, apple, celery, green onion & almonds. Mix everything together to combine. Allow for the flavors to come together before serving. Serve on a bed of organic greens, whole wheat bread or in a wrap.
Apple Tuna Almond Sandwich – Make it a sandwich or a wrap
or place on a bed of beautiful organic greens for a low carb hi protein meal.
Either way – it’s delicious
