Healthy Tuna Salad Recipe

Quick Tips... Choose tuna canned in water or olive oil.

Use Cherry tomatoes. Why?

Because if you plan on having leftovers the next day for lunch at work or home, cherry tomatoes won't make the salad soggy.

If using large tomatoes, slice just before serving.

Another great tip is to keep the salad separate from any bread you may use to make a sandwich for lunch. That way you can just pop the salad into the bread just before you want to eat it.
