Bean And Tuna Salad – Slimming World Recipe

This summer has been unbearably hot for me. I’m a Winter lover because when it’s cold you can add more layers. When it’s this hot there’s no way to get cool. Even with 2 ceiling fans and a floor fan on full power, it’s still too hot for me!
When it’s hot I don’t feel like eating hot meals but I get fed up of our usual lettuce, tomato and cucumber salad so I was pleased to find this bean and tuna salad on the Slimming World site.

    […] Tuna salad is great, but it can turn into a full meal, which is perfect for some other occasions. However, when it comes to snacks you want something small that you can eat easily and quickly before your workout. So, put your tuna salad on a cracker and don’t only serve it as an appetizer, but eat it as a great delicious workout snack. What is more, these are a great substitution for a tuna salad sandwich, for those of you who don’t want to commit to bread. To make things even better, if you don’t want those carbs from crackers, you can completely switch them with a lettuce cup. The options here are really endless and whatever you do, you will end up with a delicious bite-size tuna snack. The only thing that is important here is that you use quality tuna and mayonnaise to get the best nutritional value. Plus, you can add some freshly chopped celery for that extra crunch. […]
