Delicious Tuna Mayo Salad with the addition of chickpeas for a perfect summertime dish served with some crisp Romaine Lettuce.
Sometimes it can be hard to create a decent creamy salad without the addition of heaps of mayonnaise. But this yummy Tuna Mayo Salad ticks all the boxes for flavour, without dipping into too much of your daily allowance.
The combination of ingredients works really well together to add flavour. Pickled (gherkins) might seem like an odd addition to a tuna salad for some, but trust me when I say they really do work well.
Quite often you will find sweetcorn in a tuna mayo salad, but today when making this recipe, I was on a Slimming Eats day, so sweetcorn was off bounds, and wanting to add some protein, I opted for some chickpeas which really do compliment this salad well and make it a lot more filling and high satiety.
If you are not doing a Slimming Eats day this would be lovely on a jacket potato with a side salad of greens of your choice. Baked sweet potatoes are another great option too and if you have a healthy spare, why not try this on some yummy ryvita/crispbreads.
