No more boring tuna salad with this healthy Curried Tuna and Apple Salad that has the perfect balance of sweet, savory, and plenty of crunch.
I don't know about you but lunch is actually one of the meals that I have the hardest time planning for. With super hectic mornings where we are all scrambling to get out the door on time, lunch becomes an afterthought until my stomach is screaming for food 4 hours later. Then because I have entered a starving state where I would eat anything, I do. And it usually isn't pretty.
So I have started planning ahead for lunches on Sundays so that I have healthy options for the week. Normally that means making up a big batch of something delicious and healthy, like today's curry tuna salad, and then planning on utilizing leftovers for some other quick lunches. It has been working like a charm for me and I have happily been avoiding the drive through.
Now let's talk about this tuna salad. I make a curried chicken salad with grapes all the time that I absolutely love so this week I decided to switch it up and try it with tuna instead - delish! I swapped out the grapes for a crispy, crunchy apple that pairs great with the curry. I just love the sweet and savory combination with any curry salad dish. Then I tossed in some cilantro, carrots, red onion, and lime juice for some extra flavor. One more note, if you can let this salad sit for a few hours before serving it so all the flavors can combine. It gets even better with time.
