Regular tuna salad gets a spicy kick in this spicy tuna salad that’s both good for you and can be good for the planet, too (more on this below). It’s made with simple ingredients and can be served many different ways – sandwich-style, wrap-style, as is, or – my personal favorite – avocado toast-style. This recipe for spicy tuna salad is in partnership with Charlotte Martin, MS, RDN, CSOWM, CPT
In addition to being a great protein source, canned tuna also contains key nutrients like vitamin D – involved in immune function, calcium absorption, bone health, and more – and omega-3 fats. Research shows that omega-3 fats are critical for brain function and that they positively impact heart health by lowering triglyceride levels, blood pressure, and inflammation, and by increasing HDL-cholesterol (aka the “good” cholesterol) levels.
In fact, because of these important benefits, the latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans has strengthened the recommendations for seafood consumption, as fish and other seafood are the best sources. The guidelines recommend consuming at least two meals of a variety of fish and seafood per week.
