Lemon Pepper Tuna Salad

It’s Foodie Friday!!! This week’s AMAZING menu item? My Lemon Pepper Tuna Salad!

foodie friday

 

I’ve never been a fan of the traditional tuna salad. I just don’t like the texture and the flavor of mayo, so I have always tried to find a way to satisfy the tuna salad lovers, like my hubby, but the non-mayo wanters, like myself. It actually works out great, because this salad is SO MUCH LESS FAT that it doesn’t break the macro bank! Actually, it’s a very HIGH PROTEIN salad!

The salad is tart (those Meyer lemons give it SUCH an amazing flavor), a little spicy, refreshing, and light! The salad has more density than just any old salad, so I stay full…but at the same time, I feel like I’m eating fresh…(well, because I am!!) so I’m not left with that heavy feeling after eating. It’s DELICIOUS! You should give it a try!!
