Tuna Salad is so healthy & versatile, you can eat as a sandwich, or a wrap. How about on top of a big healthy salad; or crackers. My low point alternative is to fill inside of celery sticks, endive or make fresh lettuce/spinach cups for a delicious lunch to go! Sprinkle a little Italian seasoning and cracked fresh black pepper on top for increased flavor. Make it on a Sunday and enjoy at work for the next few days.
