Healthy Tuna Salad with Arugula

If you love tuna, you will enjoy my healthy tuna salad recipe that takes only 5 minutes to make! It is made with a handful of ingredients and really easy to put together. My favorite thing about this recipe aside from it tasting soo delicious, is the way I feel after I eat it. It keeps me full for hours at a time, and I feel so light each time I eat this salad.

Quality tuna really makes a difference with this tuna salad. My all time favorite tuna I like to use for this recipe is wildplanet albacore tuna. We all know that tuna has traces of mercury in it, which is why it’s something I won’t eat every day. What I like about wildplanet tuna is that they are pole and line caught which supports local habitats of the ocean, and fish population. Not only that, but they are one of the few companies who are transparent in sharing that they’re 3rd party tested for mercury. The also don’t have any fillers, and as a result, you can genuinely taste the quality!

The simple flavors I add really bring out the pureness of the tuna taste. I don’t know what it is about tuna and arugula, but they go so well together! Also, I can’t say enough good things about arugula and all the benefits it has for your body. I like making this salad midday for lunch, but you can also make it for dinner. Feel free to double or triple the recipe. I hope you make this salad, and please share your thoughts if you do. Bon apetit!

Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Rips and I am thrilled to share my passion with you! I am just a girl who loves to bake and cook. It’s one of my favorite things to do and is rewarding in so many ways! It teaches me to be present and helps me relieve stress. I grew up watching both my parents cook the most delicious food you could possibly imagine! Cooking healthy food for each other was something we did for the ones we cared about. Shortly after, I picked up on that habit. I come from a Mediterranean background and I bring that to a lot of my recipes with lots of modern adaptations. I have been baking and cooking for over 15 years and truly find the most joy in it! I also recently wrote and self published my first recipe book called Ripsy's Recipe's on Amazon (I will link below). Ripsy's Recipes has some amazing healthy recipes with gluten free and vegan options that everyone can enjoy. I really wanted to create an easy to follow, non intimidating healthy recipe book for you to love. It truly is my go-to for quick, healthy, easy, delicious meals! The best part of making food is I get to eat it and feed my loved ones. I am very mindful of the ingredients I use in my recipes; at the same time; I still like to indulge in dessert! My dessert recipes are lower in sugar than in any recipe or store bought dessert you will ever find (and they taste amazing). As a result, my family and I get to enjoy it without the guilt. My greatest joy comes from sharing what I make with the people I care about most, and now, you will have access to that too. I hope you try my recipes and love them as much as my family and I do! Namaste Friends!
