Picky Eater Tuna Salad – A health and easy recipe that even picky eaters will enjoy! Just right for summer picnics, barbecues and potlucks!

Okay, it’s confession time… We are not big fish fans around here! There are so many healthy benefits to fish that we have tried to like it but just don’t. This salad however is an exception!

Certain kinds of fish are very high in Omega-3’s which are essential to good health. As we’ve tried to acclimate our tastes to that fishy flavor we created this recipe. Success! We actually really, really enjoy it. Yay! A Tuna Salad that even picky eaters can enjoy.

Not only does this salad have those amazing Omega-3’s but it also is packed with good veggies. Forbidden Rice has many benefits as well. All in all this delicious salad is just right for a Memorial Day picnic, barbecue or potluck. It’s fast, easy and super tasty. Maybe put it with some Strawberry Shortcake, Chickpea Summer Salad or Buckwheat Berry Salad for even more nutrition!

    I’ve always wanted to try forbidden rice. This sounds like a great dish. Thanks for partying with us on Creative K Kids Tasty Tuesdays.

      Forbidden Rice is really fun! In some ways we think it’s lighter than brown rice. Thanks for stopping by!
