Tricky Tuna Salad

Tricky Tuna Salad (THM S, E or FP)

I’ve been making this Tricky Tuna Salad for years. It is a family favorite and has been a go to in the heat of summer with a few tweaks here and there which in my book means that it’s got some tricks up it’s sleeve so to speak. It can be a meal in and of itself or paired up with other foods to add some pizazz.

Some of the ways that I use this Tricky Tuna Salad are:

Tuna Wraps

Tuna Melts

Tuna Noodle Salad

as a Dip for veggies like peppers and celery

Most of the time I make this as an S salad with my 5 Minute Mayo, some celery, onions and eggs. But you can also make this an E salad too !!

To make this an E salad just use cooked egg whites, 0% Greek Yogurt or Body Burn Mayo from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook on page 470.

I love using the Wonder Wraps from the Cookbook as well or these wonderful Sandwich Wraps with a bunch of fresh spinach or lettuce.

 Adding a couple of cups of Dreamfields pasta makes this a great chilled salad for a quick lunch or dinner that saves some time when it’s hot outside.

    1. Water chestnuts are a FP… and this can be which ever fuel you choose it to be by what you put into it… if you are using full fat mayo and whole boiled eggs it would be an S… If you choose to use yogurt with a small amount of fat free mayo and egg whites only it would be a FP or suitable for an E meal 🙂
