Curry Tuna Salad

I've been craving salads recently, probably because of the heat, so I made this one up and I'm pretty proud of it!  In my mind, tuna is the perfect food.  It’s crazy high in heart healthy omega 3s, it’s high in protein, and the best part is, it’s super cheap and easy to use when canned.  I recommend albacore as it’s a bit higher in omega 3s than the chunk white.  I call that a win-win!  Cheap, shelf stable, and healthy?!?!  Not many other foods that can say that…

Enjoy your fiber, protein, monounsaturated fat, omega 3, antioxidant filled meal.
