As some of my readers already know, I have been hosting a Whole30 challenge this month through my business Back 2 Basics Cooking . Many of the participants have stated how much the support has helped them to change their eating habits, but it has also taught me a lot in return! As I said in another post, I have learned tons of awesome whole food recipes. This recipe was inspired by something one of the participants posted. (I am not sure if she wants me to give her name, so if now I am going to leave it out.)
I didn’t have all of the ingredients on hand for her recipe, so I had to improvise. As is almost always, my improvising was a success! I discovered another cheap meal that requires no heat for cooking, so it is super quick to throw together. It is also great to take for a lunch since it doesn’t need to be warmed up. I thought I would share my new go to meal with all of my awesome readers.
It is the perfect balance of sweet and salty that has the crunch that you crave, while leaving you satisfied for several hours!
Sweet and Salty Tuna Salad
1 Can of Tuna (Albacore Works Great) in Olive Oil
1 Apple Cut into Chunks
1 Cucumber Cut into Chunks
1/4 Yellow Onion Diced Small
A Large Pinch of Sea Salt
Mix together and enjoy!
Please note: Wild Planet Tuna is a fantastic, sustainable option; however, when I wrote this blog, we were on a really tight budget. If you use Wild Planet just add 2 Tbsp of Olive Oil.
