Tuna salad is a staple in my house during lunch time and for good reason! It’s high protein, low carb and I always have a can or two on hand at the ready. My boys love it in a sandwich with crusty bread and I love eating it on salad greens or with rice crackers for a lighter option.

For a fun twist on the classic, I love throwing in diced apples to my tuna salad this time of year. Not only do apples add a subtle sweet flavor and lots of crunch, but it’s a great way to add a serving of fruit into your day.
