Lemon Pepper Tuna Salad + New Favorite Chopped Salad

Nov 18, 2020

I wanted to share two recipes that have been on repeat around here. I love light yet filling lunches and this has been a favorite combo. The flavors in both salads are so fresh and vibrant. By now y’all know Tonnino Tuna is basically all I buy. It is hands down the best tuna. Once you try it you will never look at canned tuna the same. The quality and flavor are top-notch. You can find it at Whole Foods and Harris Teeter- but the best flavor selection is on Amazon, I typically buy the jalapeño flavor but decided to branch out with the lemon pepper and it is equally amazing.

This is a lighter mayo-free tuna salad. It is filled with all my favorites like spicy pickles and capers and tossed with a Dijon Vinaigrette. The chopped salad recipe below pairs perfectly with the tuna!
