I am always looking for flavorful and protein-rich salads. I find that tuna is the easiest way to add healthy and lean protein to my meals without having to turn on the oven, stove or grill.
For quite a while I’ve been using Wild Selections Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water. It’s truly the highest quality and tastiest canned tuna. Besides that, there are other things that make me choose Wild Selections® over any other canned seafood product. Here are a few things I love about them:
- Wild Selections® truly cares about and deeply acts on sustainability.
- Wild Selections® sources its wild-caught seafood only from ocean areas that have been certified sustainable to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Standard – the world’s leading certification program for wild caught,
- The seafood is sourced from ocean areas where fish are healthy and plentiful. Talk about knowing where your food comes from!
- No weird ingredients added! All Wild Selections® products use simple ingredients and are non-GMO.
Now back to this super tasty Mexican Tuna Salad. The ingredients are simple and the dressing could not be easier to make! I particularly love tuna salads without mayo and this one delivers in flavor. Trust me you will not miss the mayo at all!
- You can use Wild Selections Solid White Albacore Tuna in Olive Oil for this recipe. Equally amazing and equally delicious!
- You can use regular (non-roasted) corn for this recipe. If frozen, thaw before mixing it with the rest of the ingredients.
- You can eat this salad immediately after tossing (because trust me, who could wait?) but it taste better if it sits for at least 20 minutes so the flavors develop and meld together.
- If your avocado is a bit over-ripe, add just before serving.
