Tuna Salad with Bling

Adding vegetables and even fruits to green salads may not be news — but to tuna salad? This week’s Health-e-Recipe for Spring Tuna Salad makes a yummy combination of this affordable fish, rich in healthful omega-3 fats, and a selection of Spring produce that may help lower cancer risk and control weight gain.

Apple, spring onions (scallions) and green pepper give this salad a tangy taste and crunchy texture. Flavonoids in apples may help suppress breast, lung and colon tumors; phytochemicals in scallions and other members of the onion family protect …. and green pepper contains vitamin C, an antioxidant that protects cells from wear and tear. More flavor comes from the fresh lemon and dill. Add watercress, a peppery-tasting cruciferous vegetable, plus buttery Boston lettuce and cucumbers, and toss yourself an unusually delicious and healthy tuna salad to remember.
