Lighter Tuna Salad with Radishes and Dried Cherries

Tuna Salad

Lighter and loaded with flavor

I feel like tuna salad is one of those things you either love, or you don’t eat. I’m a tuna salad lover! When the folks from Bumble Bee Foods contacted me to try a range of their products and develop a recipe, I was thrilled!

For the days you have time to spare, this recipe for Lighter Tuna Salad with Radishes and Dried Cherries makes a great meal. Whether you have a special day planned that includes putting together brunch (add the tuna salad to long endive spears or serve over salad greens), or you’re making sandwiches for a satisfying lunch, this recipe adds a few ingredients that will make it special any time. I’ve also lightened things up by replacing half the mayonnaise with Greek-style yogurt.

On-the-go options

You might know Bumble Bee for its tuna (and it offers a wide variety of tuna), but it also has additional sea food products like salmon, shrimp, clams and more. New to me, Bumble Bee also has tuna that comes pre-seasoned — its Sensations line — perfect for days when you’re short on time. There is a Spicy Thai Chili option that includes roasted garlic, onion, paprika, and chili; Sundried Tomato & Basil; and also Lemon & Pepper. These are perfect to serve with salad greens, or over pasta or brown rice — just pop open the can and toss.
