Sun-dried Tomato Tuna Salad

Want something new and fresh for lunch?

Me too! On most days I flop between a salad, salmon and stir-fried veggies, and low-carb chicken wrap. I always forget about tuna fish. Until now.

I literally opened my fridge and added what I had on hand in a bowl and I was quite proud of the end result. Basically, wild caught tuna gets fancied up with chopped sun-dried tomato, garlic, lemon zest and capers. Personally, I love this tuna salad served with lots of crisp lettuce sandwiched between lightly toasted whole grain bread. But sometimes I just wrap it up in lettuce for a low-carb lunch.

This wholesome healthy lunch takes minutes – what’s not to love?
