Tropical Tuna Salad
Celebrate the taste of summer with some of my favorite fruits in this Tropical Tuna Salad. Mango, pineapple and avocado combine for a mouth-watering, refreshing flavor. Can you tell that I’m dreaming of my Miami beach vacation coming soon? Yes, my mind is already in the tropics!!!
Super easy to whip together too! So, you can get back to summer fun! I’m thinking this would make the perfect on-the-beach picnic food. Vibrant and full of fresh nutritious fruits- this tropical tuna salad packs a powerful protein punch from both the Greek yogurt and tuna fish. Feel free to customize as you wish. I went with two favorites- pineapple and mango, but other ideas are clementines, sliced banana, strawberries, kiwi… and the list goes on.
Tuna salads are the best for light summer lunches and this Tropical Tuna Salad is the ultimate sunshine meal. Simply chop your fruit, measure ingredients and stir… easy as 1,2,3!
I gave this salad an extra kick of flavor by adding Bumble Bee Prime Fillet Albacore Tuna with Jalapeños & Olive Oil. Tuna is a fabulous way to increase your protein either in a salad or on a sandwich. And with all of Bumble Bee’s flavored tuna options, you can simply eat it straight from the can or pouch!
I served my tuna salad in collard wraps and believe it or not, this was my first time eating collard leaves. I’ve always used romaine or cabbage leaves as wraps. Collard leaves are much easier to work with- they’re much larger than romaine or cabbage and super sturdy.
