Strawberry Tuna Salad

I know they aren’t in season yet locally, but the strawberries in my grocery store smelled amazing! I couldn’t pass them up and I don’t regret it one bit. It’s like a little prequel to summer. I can’t wait!

I decided to make tuna salad for lunch yesterday since the boys were eating leftover Chinese. At first I was just going to make one of my standard tuna ideas but then I spied the strawberries and thought, why not?

Strawberry Tuna Salad close upOMG What a great combo! The sweet strawberry bites went perfectly with the tuna and adding a little balsamic really brought it together. As soon as I took a bite I thought, “Why isn’t this more popular?”

Maybe it is, but I’ve just been living under a rock. Who knows?

Next time I probably won’t use as much yogurt because it was a little runny for my taste but I’ll share how I made it yesterday and you can adjust.

  • 1 5oz can of chunk light tuna in water, drained
  • 2oz fat free Greek yogurt
  • 2 large, ripe, strawberries chopped
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 pinches kosher salt

Put all ingredients in a bowl.

I served mine on a sandwich thin but I could totally see it on a bed of fresh spinach, in a wrap or stuffed in a pita.

    This looks very tasty, but I’m going to have to substitute chicken since I can’t tolerate the taste of tuna. good idea with the strawberries.

    I thought strawberries and tuna should never be put together, but this looks delicious. I’ll admit it, I really wanna try this.
