I’ve had my Fixate cookbook for awhile now and I’ve still not tried a bunch of recipes that I’d dog eared 18 months ago. So in preparation for this round of 21 Day Fix, I decided to break it out (as well as consult the Fixate cooking show on Beachbody On Demand!) for some recipes I could add to my weekly meal plan. (If you want to see my latest 21 Day Fix meal plan that has incredibly delicious recipes on it and not just plain, old grilled chicken breast, click here!) And lo and behold, I came across this little recipe and knew I’d marked it down as a recipe I wanted to try for a reason! This 21 Day Fix tuna salad is DA BOMB, y’all!
Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a little mayo in my tuna salad, but there’s this thing called saturated fat that’s, um, notsogood for you and so tuna salad + mayo really isn’t the best thing for your body. But this recipe, you guys, has ZERO mayo in it and is STILL that good!
The bonus is that it makes two servings so you can have it for two lunches (or an easy dinner, if you desire) and it’s quite the versatile salad because you can spoon it on just about anything! Day 1 I halved a cucumber, seeded it, and then added the tuna salad on top for tuna salad boats. Day 2 I sliced off the top of a yellow bell pepper, seeded it, and then filled it with the tuna salad. The remaining salad I put on top of a toasted whole wheat thin! Both options SO good, y’all!
Bonus #2: you get a TON of veggies in this way, which, if you’re anything like me, is always a struggle! This tuna salad will absolutely be on my rotation, though, for quite some time! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
- 2 cans (5 oz. each) packed in water, drained
- 1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
- 1 medium red bell pepper, finely chopped
- 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh tarragon *I used 1/2 to 1 tsp. dried tarragon
Super easy. Just combine all the ingredients, the tuna, oil, mustard, bell pepper and tarragon in a medium bowl and mix well!!
