Apple Tuna Almond Salad

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.
