I love this fantastic low salt tuna salad recipe for when I want a quick and easy lunch recipe. If you have canned tuna (the no-salt-added variety) and a few simple ingredients, this recipe comes together in about 10 minutes.

Regular canned tuna can have lots of added salt and preservatives, upping the sodium content. Choosing a low- or -no-salt-added canned tuna is great to use in easy and quick recipes like this.
