Asian Tuna Salad

Asian Tuna Salad | Paleo, Low Carb, Gluten Free by Strive to Thrive Nutrition

This Asian Tuna Salad is my kind of salad– no lettuce at all!

I’m joking. Sort of.

I feel like salads are the thing everyone turns to when they are trying to eat healthier. And there’s nothing necessarily wrong with that, so long as you are using good quality dressings and balancing all those veggies with some fat and protein for a satisfying meal. But for me, I’ve come to terms with the fact that salads just don’t really do it for me. I’m usually left wanting more out of my meal.

If you’re starting feel the same way about your salad lunches, this Asian Tuna Salad will spice things up for you! Packed with protein, healthy fats, and tons of flavor, it’s a satisfying meal that will keep you going until dinner. Eat it by the forkful, scoop it up with veggie sticks or Jackson’s Honest chips, and by all means, serve this tuna salad on top of an actual salad!

Let’s take a moment to talk mayo. Please for the love of all that is good, do not buy Best Foods or Miracle Whip! Almost all jarred mayonnaise is made from highly processed, inflammatory oils (such as canola oil and soybean oil). They also contain added sugars and preservatives. Stay far away!

It’s super easy to make your own homemade mayo (this is my go-to recipe as well as a video of me making it), but thankfully there are a couple awesome companies now producing mayo that’s made from healthful avocado oil: Chosen Foods and Primal Kitchen. Hooray!
