Southwestern Tuna Salad

Shares

We all know we are supposed to be eating more fish in our diet, especially fatty fish like tuna and salmon. But it’s not cheap and it’s not always easy to come up with interesting recipes. My kids love tuna salad but I get tired of the same old, same old. So I spiced it up a little this time. It was delicious served over fresh jicama slices. A perfect light lunch recipe!
