In Skellytown, Texas, Jennifer Harris perks up her fresh-tasting tuna salad with flavorful salsa. Bright corn and green pepper add pretty color to the mixture. Served on a bed of lettuce, it makes a great light lunch.
I came up with this recipe on a hot summer day when I didn't feel like cooking. I frequently make it when friends come for lunch, and they all love it. Stuffed into a pretty pepper half, the fresh-tasting tuna mixture gets crunch from cucumber and green onions. It's priced right at 87¢ a serving.
It's surprising how a few herbs can brighten up tuna salad. Made with reduced-fat mayonnaise, this version from Billie Moss gets zip from mustard. "It makes a great light lunch or Sunday brunch item," she notes from El Sobrante, California.
