The trick with using canned tuna is to incorporate a ton of fresh ingredients and flavors, and that’s exactly what this recipe does.

To make this healthy tuna salad recipe, you’ll need:

  • canned tuna

  • crunchy celery

Once you’ve got your ingredients, all you have to do is combine everything into a mixing bowl, give it a stir, and you’re done.
