Tuna Salad Recipe

    Tuna salad is a favorite among many for its creamy consistency and wonderful texture. The eggs, sweet pickle relish, and mayo all provide fantastic texture and flavor, but they also don’t make for the healthiest meal option out there.

    Instead, we’re sharing a healthy tuna salad recipe that you can feel good about making and eating on the regular. You can enjoy this tuna salad on its own or make a tuna salad sandwich with it.

    This simple tuna salad recipe is made with light tuna, boiled eggs, celery, onion, sweet pickles, and fat-free cottage cheese. The tuna, eggs, and cheese all provide a nice dose of protein, while the celery and pickles provide crunch and flavor.

    We like serving this healthy tuna salad recipe as a dip with crackers for lunch or as an appetizer at gatherings. Anyone who loves tuna will enjoy this salad, especially on a warm summer day when it feels great to eat something refreshing and light.
