Cranberry Tuna Salad

Lately summer lunches have had me stumped. Most days I am making some type of salad or wrap using leftover protein and veggies. However sometimes I want something different so I decided to create one of my favorite Whole Foods Cranberry Tuna Salads at home. The recipe itself is simple – some tuna, dried cranberries, a touch of apple and celery, and the secret ingredient – a couple tablespoons of sour cream. It takes a simple tuna salad to another level and will quickly be your new favorite summer lunch.

    This is very good with shredded chicken. I keep shredded chicken on hand in the freezer – just do a family pack in a pressure cooker, fork shred while hot (easier to shred when hot), and package in 2 cups increments. Thaw when needed. I use for cranberry chicken salad, chicken enchiladas, chicken quesadillas, and other pasta dishes.
