Lately I’ve been racking my brain around creative ways to pack more protein into my meals without eating chicken all the time. Did you know a can of light tuna contains a whopping 24g of protein?! I don’t know how many dishes you can make with canned tuna except tuna salad and I try to stay away from mayo based meals as much as I can. It was by chance that I recently came across the greatest mayo substitute (hello healthy egg and chicken salads!): flavoured greek yogurt dips. I picked up Summer Fresh Greek Yogurt Dips in “Jalapeno”. They’re gluten free, full of probiotics and doesn’t miss out on flavour.
What came next was a magical marriage of the two to create a healthy alternative to the classic tuna salad. This goes great on toast or with quinoa!
Protein-Packed Tuna Salad (Serves 3-4)
- 1/3 can of corn
- 2 cans of light tuna, drained
- 1 1/2 celery stalks, chopped
- 1/3 of red onion, diced
- 4 tablespoons of Summer Fresh Greek Yogurt Dip in Jalepeno
- Mix all ingredients into a bowl and serve
This can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for a week. Perfect for packed lunches!
