Tuna Salad with Apples

As a pescatarian, I don't have many choices when it comes to sandwiches. That's why I really appreciate a good tuna salad. Not too fishy, not too bland, not too runny, but not too dry. I like to keep it simple. Enter my tuna salad; moistened with plain greek yogurt, a dollop of mustard and a splash of lemon, with scallion, celery, and sweet, crisp apple folded in, and finally seasoned with just salt and pepper. Delectable. So good that most of the time I don't even eat it in a sandwich, just straight up! 

Tuna Salad with Apples

1 5oz can of tuna
1/2 cup of scallions (thinly sliced)
1/2 cup of celery (chopped)
3/4 cup of diced apples
1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt
1/2 tbs of mustard
1/2 tbs of fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper

  2. Add greek yogurt, mustard, lemon juice, and mix well.
  3. Stir in scallions, celery, and apples.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Hope you enjoy this fresh, simple dish as much as I do!
