Helpful hints

  • Adjust portion if you are on a lower protein diet. Ask your dietitian to recommend the correct portion for your individual needs.
  • The juices from the fruit and vegetables will maintain moisture in the tuna salad.
  • If you’d like to munch something crunchy, try Matilde’s Tuna Salad with celery sticks or lightly steamed green beans.
