Arugula Beet Tuna Salad Recipe

Salad is my “go to” lunch meal when I need something quick and filling and I’m short on time.

But is has been a while since last time I made a green salad with canned white albacore tuna. I usually use this fish for a creamy tuna salad with mayo (Greek yogurt), celery and grapes. The truth is that I prefer canned tuna is a green salad. The combination of fresh veggies and tuna is always a winner.

In this salad I used beets (a great source of Vitamin C and fiber), shredded carrots (rich in Beta Carotene), arugula (antioxidants and vitamins) and the most important ingredient, that makes the salad unique – Wild Selections® Solid White Albacore Tuna in Olive Oil.

The result was so delicious! I had this salad three days in a row, this is how much I loved it. This tuna tastes so good!

The crisp and peppery arugula goes very well with the fish.

I also used fresh grated carrot for extra sweetness and grated beets (earthy flavor).

I made a light dressing with olive oil, leomon juice, vinegar, salt, pepper and some honey.

Such a simple salad with lots of great flavors and beautiful colors. It comes together in under 10 minutes. Save time making your meals and enjoy the day. I even used store bought pre-cooked beets to save time. And of course canned tuna, which is very convenient.

Did you know that Earth Day is this month?

It is on Saturday, April 22.

You can read more on the history of Earth day and learn more about it on their website.

The idea of National Earth Day to focus on the environment is a great one and I’m more than happy to celebrate it with a clean green salad like this Arugula Tuna Beet Salad.

Wild Selections® is the only full line of Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable seafood. The blue MSC eco-label tells you the fish in your can comes from well managed fisheries and healthy fish stocks. Where the fish is caught is much more critical than how it was caught (limited impact if the fish stock is overfished).

Working to ensure a fish-full future: Wild Selections® gives back to the oceans by donating 13 cents from every can sold—a total of $1 million by 2018—to World Wildlife Fund marine conservation and fishery improvement projects.

Wild Selections® is the only brand to “pay it forward” and act on its belief to take care of the oceans for the future, not just fishing sustainably in the present.
