Spring Veggie Tuna Salad
Spring veggies are here and abundant!! Now tuna salads are on my usual weekly rotation because they are such an easy lunch to throw together – but I like to change up what I add into them pretty much every time. I loveee the fresh flavors of spring so I knew the two were bound to collide. Insert – Safe Catch Tuna, asparagus, peas, carrots and dill! I get questions all the time on intsagram about tuna consumption during pregnancy. I just thank my lucky stars that Safe Catch is such a clean brand and checks each of their tuna for mercury. I also know that tuna is packed with DHA which is super important in pregnancy (and we talk all about in the Healthy Happy Mama eBook!). This tuna salad is great to make a batch of to prep for the week, or you can just whip it up on the spot for lunch. I microwave the veggies real quick to cook them and add them with just a few other ingredients to make this nutrient packed meal.
In these photos I served the tuna salad on top of greens… making a tuna salad salad – but you can eat tuna soooo many different ways. I am a fan of eating it on sweet potato toast, an english muffin, or just full on living my pregnant dreams and making a tuna melt. I don’t know what it is about tuna melts but they have my heart and am sure they always will – my ultimate comfort food! And adding veggies right into the tuna salad means all the bread and ghee I surround it with is fine right?? 🙂 So now that you have ordered a new batch of Safe Catch, let’s make some spring veggie tuna salad!
