I'm going on day 2 of counting Weight Watcher Points and I'm already inspired to come up with light, healthy meals for myself. It's like I needed the constraint of points to motivate me. Isn't that weird?
Anyway, all morning I was brainstorming what to make for lunch. I wanted something flavorful and satisfying and I think I hit the nail on the head, for me anyway. Armed with an orange, a red pepper, and my pantry I came up with an Orange Ginger Tuna Salad. You may never want a boring mayo based tuna salad ever again! This was sweet with a little spice, creamy and delicious! Oh! and it's a cinch to make!
Here's what I did…
- 1 5oz can of light tuna packed in water drained
- 1 small orange peeled and chopped (and any juice that leaks out)
- ¼ of a red bell pepper diced
- 2 tbsp Fat Free yogurt (I used greek)
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried cilantro
- pinch of kosher salt and ground pepper
Put all ingredients in a bowl
Make sure you squish at the orange a little to release of some the juice.
That's it! I put mine and a bed of baby spinach on a Sandwich Thin adding a side of carrots. It was the perfect lunch!
Here's the nutritional info just for the tuna salad so you can serve it anyway you like (in a pita, on a salad, straight up!)
