Fresh Lemon and Herb Tuna Salad

I love a good chicken, tuna or egg salad sandwich, but the calories of the usual mayo-laden mixture?  Not so much.  Plus, who wants to have a heavy mayo dish in their belly on a hot summer day? 

This recipe for tuna salad removes the calorie-laden mayonnaise and replaces it with a fresh herb, lemon juice, olive oil and vinegar light dressing.  The result?  Less calories and fat than traditional tuna salad, with way fresher flavor! 

Fresh Lemon and Herb Tuna Salad

2 - 5oz containers canned tuna in water, drained
2 tablespoons red onion, diced (or chives or green onion)
3-4 tablespoons fresh herbs (I used parsley and basil)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
salad greens (optional)
bread (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl.  Stir well.

For best flavor, refrigerate for an hour or so before serving, but can definitely be eaten immediately!

Serve with salad greens or bread.

Serves 4.

Life is sweet!

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
