Tuna Salad Recipe

There is always a salad and tuna is used in many ways in the kitchen. What could be more obvious than creating a tuna salad.

Is tuna healthy? This question very often leads to great discussions, but it can definitely be answered in the affirmative. The meat contains little fat and a lot of high-quality protein, iodine and zinc as well as vitamin D. The valuable omega-3 fatty acids are also found in relatively large quantities in tuna.

The fish is rarely eaten fresh, many people eat canned tuna. Compared to the fresh version, the nutritional value is slightly different.
