Spicy-Crunchy Tuna Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 can white albacore tuna in water
  • 1 cup Nature’s Promise Organic String Beans
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Gourmet Sliced Roasted Almonds
  • 1/4 sliced avocado
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha
  • 2 tbsp Primal Kitchen Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
  • a pinch of minced ginger, (approximately 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1 tbsp diced scallion, (for garnish, optional)

Instructions:

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil.
  • Add a cup of Nature’s Promise String Beans & boil for 1 minute.
  • Strain the water, and allow string beans to cool.
  • Dice the string beans into 1 inch pieces.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except the scallion, and mix thoroughly.
  • Top with 1 tbsp diced scallion for garnish.

This one’s quick & easy, but healthy & delicious! It’s the perfect Summertime lunch or dinner, and a great addition for beach days, or an easy dinner option after a long day at the beach. The crunch is very satisfying as are the flavors in this refreshing salad. You may also want to squeeze a little lime on the combination for an even more flavorful experience.

Portions: 1/2 can of white albacore tuna for women/ 1 can of white albacore tuna for men, (or if using fresh albacore, 3 oz. for women, 6 oz. for men.)

This recipe may be used as a Meal 4 option on the Remedy Recipes format. To use it as a Meal 2 or 3, simply add some more crunch to the recipe with some Lundberg’s Brown Rice Chips, (6-8 for women, & 10-12 for men.) Break them up & add them to the mix!

We hope that you enjoy this simple & convenient recipe, and the fact that it requires very little cooking and prep, beyond the boiling of string beans.

More time for sunshine!!!

Mangiare, Piaccia! Eat, Enjoy!
