This very easy artichoke tuna salad is lightly seasoned with lemon, olive oil, herbs, salt, and pepper for a fresh twist on a salad made mostly from the pantry!
To further freshen the base ingredients, the recipe creator, Kelsey Nixon, recommends serving this artichoke tuna salad on a bed of fresh seasonal greens. It’s also perfect for lunch boxes, served with a crusty roll (gluten-free, if needed), or as a sandwich or wrap filling.
Here are some more great tips from Nixon on using canned foods as we head into the cooler months:
- Keeping a well-stocked pantry, or “Cantry,” will help you avoid unnecessary trips to the grocery store after a long day.
- Tomato-based canned ingredients, like diced tomatoes and tomato sauce, are the most versatile when it comes to making a wide variety of recipes like chili, salsa, marinara sauce, soups or casseroles.
- Canned fruits add an unexpected twist to savory dishes, and can transform recipes in exciting ways. Just add canned peaches to homemade barbecue sauce or canned pineapple to curries and stir-fry recipes for a healthy and flavorful upgrade.
