Meal Prep 101: 4 Tuna Salad Recipes You Should Know How to Make

You may have noticed I really enjoy cooking with tuna.  (See spicy tuna avocado bites, tuna taco quinoa sliders, and tuna hummus cakes. ) However, when it comes to eating tuna salad – I’m more inclined to eat it straight out of the can then make a tuna salad.  I do have one recipe for spicy tuna salad, but I overate that so not really feeling it anymore.  So, a couple of weeks ago I set out on a mission to use up all the tuna that had been sitting in my cabinet since the beginning of lent.

The thing is, tuna is about the most convenient meal prep lunch you could possibly make.  The only thing that might be more convenient would be the adult lunchable (which PS I’m sharing with you on my Facebook live today at 10 am MST, so check it out!) Plus, we all know tuna is a great source of lean protein and potentially a good source of Omega 3.  (Not all canned tuna has a good dose of omega 3, you can read about that here.) Last week I set out on a mission to use up all the tuna that had been sitting in my cabinet since the beginning of lent.  I decided I HAD to get creative with my tuna salad so I would actually WANT to eat it!

These four tuna salad recipes were a huge success, I was excited about tuna salad again!

Thai Tuna Salad

Carrot Raisin Tuna Salad

  • 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt*
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 can tuna

Buffalo Ranch Tuna Salad

  • 2 tablespoons ranch *
  • 1 tablespoon buffalo sauce
  • 1 cup chopped veggies (I Used Trader Joe’s Healthy 8, but plain celery would work)
  • 1 can tuna

Spicy Stuffed Avocado

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tablespoon salsa*
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 can tuna

Tuna Salad Notes:

For each recipe just combine all the ingredients and serve!  All recipes were made with (affiliate link–> ) wild planet tuna.  Since they pack it with the tuna’s naturally occurring omega 3 rich oils you do not drain it.  So, if you use a different tuna that you drain, you may need to add a bit more liquid.  I noted with a star what you would add more of.
