This healthy tuna salad is light on calories but loaded with protein and antioxidants. It’s delicious on crisp salad greens like Romaine lettuce or as a topper on whole grain crackers or crostini. We love it as a pre or post workout mini-meal that’ll give you an energy boost.
6 oz canned albacore tuna*
2 tablespoons capers, drained and chopped
1 tablespoon chopped Italian parsley
zest of 1 small lemon
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or Organic Meyer Lemon Olive Oil
1/2 tablespoon (or more) fresh squeezed lemon juice
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl, mixing with a fork to break up tuna. Add remaining ingredients and toss. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt, pepper and lemon juice.
*We highly recommend American Tuna’s pole caught wild albacore.
