Tuna Salad with Organic Baby Romaine

IMG_2362

This simple, colorful and tasty salad can be easily prepared during the busy work week. The tuna salad and dressing can be made in advance. All you need to do is slice the apple and assemble! I reduced the fat and calories, but not the taste, by replacing half of the mayonnaise with nonfat plain yogurt in the tuna salad!

Ingredients for tuna salad:

  • 1 can (5 ounce) albacore tuna packed in water
  • 5 slices organic bread and butter pickles, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons organic nonfat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

Using a fork mix the tuna, pickles, onion, yogurt and mayonnaise together. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Ingredients for salad dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons organic sunflower oil
  • 1½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon organic honey
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

Whisk oil, lemon juice and honey together. Add salt and pepper to taste and whisk thoroughly.

Ingredients for salad:

  • 1 package (5 ounce) organic baby romaine lettuce
  • ½ organic Fuji apple, cut into thin slices
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts

Using half the ingredients, spread lettuce on a plate, sprinkle with pine nuts, place tuna salad in the center of the plate, add apple slices and drizzle the dressing. Repeat for second plate. Serves 2.
