Adventures of Eating with dReJ: healthy, cheap, delicious

As the weather warms up, it’s hard to pass up such an easy lunch idea like tuna salad. You can do a million different things with tuna salad, even switching it up and making it a chicken salad works, too. So many options!

This week we went with a unique route with our tuna salad by incorporating two of my favorite ingredients: artichokes and olives! Honestly, this recipe could NOT be easier, and it’s perfect for a warm sunny day!

We call this a pile up sandwich!

Here’s the link from one of our favorite recipe sites: Eatingwell.com –> http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/artichoke_ripe_olive_tuna_salad.html

Coming in at 210 calories, you can splurge on some yummy bread. We picked out a honey wheat loaf from our grocery’s deli. Even with the bread, we’re still under 400 calories. Just enough calories left to have an extra snack as this is a light lunch, although super delicious.

One tip if you aren’t going to eat it right away – we like to mix everything up EXCEPT the mayo. We add the mayo the morning we bring it with us to work to eat. This keeps it from getting runny if you are making it in advance!

Enjoy!
