Your doctor or dietician will be very happy to hear that you included this salad to your diet. Actually, Mediterranean tuna and walnut salad has everything they ask you to include in your diet: fish, walnut, olive oil, onion, tomatoes, and all other fresh and green stuff.
When I eat a salad with no meat or fish, it takes maximum two hours before I ask for another one, which means extra calories. Rich protein and omega 3 fatty acid content of tuna and walnut keeps my stomach full for several hours. More important than that, I like its taste and it is available at all times. Filling your salad up with all veggies may be healthy but they lack the necessary protein content you need for a healthy diet. Tuna is the most delicious and maybe the most practical protein source for a salad.
The quality of olive oil and fresh veggies are other contributors for a delicious salad. Other oil types like sunflower, canola or corn oil will take the taste away, so be careful not to pour them on your salad. Onion also makes a magic touch to Mediterranean tuna and walnut salad! Crispy and a little strong onions give it a good texture you feel in your mouth. If you don’t like the onion that strong, covering it with some salt after slicing and keeping it in water for a few minutes will take the bitter taste away.
Organic purple lettuce and carrot were other important ingredients. They gave a kind of liveliness and freshness the salad and were really well-matched with other veggies and tuna. If you are hungry and looking for a healthy thing to eat, Mediterranean tuna and walnut salad is the best choice for you. Just a small tip: if you are very hungry, just add more tuna!
