Balsamic Tuna Salad

Submitted by: DALSEGNO

Introduction

I was looking for a way to spruce up tuna salad that included less fat. This is what I came up with. You can also substitute other vinegar if you don't like balsamic.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 16 oz can of tuna
    1 small red onion, sliced thinly
    20 kalamata olives
    15 cherry tomatoes (I use heirloom)
    3 tablespoons mayonnaise (you can use a light variety for less calories, but I make mine)
    3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    4 anchovies, smashed (optional)

Tips

If you don't like anchovies, try capers instead.

Directions

Slice your red onion, kalamata olives, and tomato and put it into a bowl. Add the anchovies. Stir. Add the balsamic vinegar and mayonnaise. Stir until coated. Slowly add the tuna, stirring to coat the tuna in the dressing.

I say it makes about 6 half cup servings, but it really depends on how big the tomatoes and onion are. I've gone up to a full cup and it's been about the same calorie wise because the veggies don't add too many calories.

I usually have this on a baguette or roll, but that isn't included in the nutritional content.

Serving Size: makes about 6 half cup servings
