6-Ingredient Protein-Packed Tuna Salad

Whenever I am in a rush to make lunch or a quick dinner, or am in desperate need of a grocery shop, I know I can always open the cupboard and find a can of tuna hidden back there that I can easily transform into a quick, simple, healthy meal. One can of tuna typically contains about 28g of protein, and is a good source of omega-3s and vitamin D. Adding Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise adds even more protein as well as gut-healthy probiotics, and mixing in some vegetables such as celery and bell peppers adds fibre. This tuna salad is healthy, flavourful, and can easily be made into a sandwich, added to lettuce wraps, or eaten on its own.



Ingredients (for 1 serving):


1 can flaked light tuna

2 stalks of celery, chopped

1/2 yellow bell pepper (or red, orange)

2 tbsp red onion, finely chopped

2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt

1 1/2 tsp white wine vinegar (or red wine vinegar)

Pinch of salt and pepper


Directions:


Drain the tuna and add to a small mixing bowl.


Chop the celery, pepper, and onion, and add to the tuna.


Add the Greek yogurt, white wine vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste, and mix until well combined.


Divide among two leaves of romaine lettuce, whole wheat wraps, or whole wheat toast, serve and enjoy!
