I love tuna salad without the mayonnaise! Whether fresh or Wild Planet’s pole caught tuna it’s a great source of protein to add to any salad. The colorful vegetables are a rainbow of phytonutrients and in the summer you can find everything local and fresh. With this recipe I added forbidden rice that has a purple black color and is rich in iron and high in fiber and antioxidant nutrients. It also includes protein! Enjoy this salad packed full of antioxidant nutrients and about 7-8 grams of fiber.
4 cups spring herb mix
2 cups Arugula
1 red pepper chopped
1 orange pepper chopped
1 yellow carrot chopped
1/2 red onion sliced very thin
3 radishes chopped
8 oz. tuna (or I use two cans of Wild Planet Albacore tuna)
1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
2/3 cup Black forbidden rice cooked
1/4 cup sunflower oil
2 tablespoons For Pete’s Sake Honey mustard
1/8 cup water
1 lemon squeezed
Mix dressing in a jar and refrigerate until you are ready to use.
Add tuna to a bowl and all vegetables. Top with toasted pumpkin seeds and dressing!
