Twist on Tuna Salad
On my mission to stay added-sugar-free during the 40 days and 40 nights of Lent, I even had to amend my go-to tuna salad recipe. Instead of sweet relish and fat free Miracle Whip to add tanginess, I had to make some substitutions.
Being a fish-eating vegetarian (pescetarian?), tuna is a great protein source that’s easy to take on the go. I started with two drained cans of chunk light tuna from Aldi. I added 1/4 cup chopped celery, 1/4 cup chopped roasted red pepper, 1 tsp paprika, 1/4 cup shredded low fat cheddar, and 2 Tbsp Fit & Active reduced fat mayo. The mayo has no sugar but fat free MW does – go figure! It turned out surprisingly tasty and has been my lunch two days in a row at work.
I ate it along with Aldi Fit & Active Thin Wheat Crackers. I am a big fan of the store’s prices and their Fit & Active line! You get 16 stamp-sized crackers for 130 calories.
