Making Tuna Salad

Tuna salad can is a simple delicious meal that can be served on sandwiches (without noodles) or eaten as a stand alone meal with pasta in it. It is also a great accompaniment to green vegetable salad. Tuna is a good source of Omega-3 fatty acid, which helps stave off heart problems. It is also rich in niacin, vitamin A, vitamin E, and vitamin B12 and B6. It is rich in selenium too. Selenium is good for liver cleansing. It is a low-fat protein that has no saturated fat when the water packed varieties are used. Tuna is one of the most commonly eaten fish in North America due to its taste, health properties, and inexpensive cost.

This tuna salad recipe is a stand alone recipe with noodles and English peas. It is creamy and delicious and I often eat it with soda crackers. Hope you enjoy!
