This quarter at school has been crazy so far, I am taking the max credit hours allowed while still working part time as well as renovating our new house with my Husband. Needles to say, this means I need low cost, fast and healthy food on the go! My favorite lunch this quarter has been tuna salad. I love it because it takes a few minutes to make and costs very little. This salad is also perfect for springtime because it is light and utilizes crunchy spicy radishes which are in season right now.
Normally, I am not a big canned tuna fan, it reminds me of my old college days when I would eat those nasty tuna and cracker combos out of the vending machine during late night study sessions ( oh to have the iron stomach of a 19 year old again!). However, by using chunk light canned tuna and brightening the salad with lemon juice, creamy greek yogurt and dill, it tastes bright, lemony and fresh instead of dark and oily. Enjoy!
