RECIPE: Southwest Tuna Salad


Enjoy a south-of-the-border twist with fewer calories.

Mexican food is wonderful in the summertime with an ice-cold cerveza or an oversized salt-rimmed Margarita. Who wouldn’t love some tacos smothered with cheese and guacamole, covered in sour cream?

Well…maybe Mexican food isn’t that great an option in the summertime when you have a bathing suit to fit into. Worry not, beachgoers, we’ve got a healthy, delicious alternative to high-calorie, south-of-the-border-fare using Starkist Creations’ Sweet and Spicy Tuna. Try it out at your next fiesta. This is anything but your basic can of albacore.

Southwest Tuna Salad

– 1 (5-ounce) pouch StarKist Creations Sweet & Spicy Tuna
– 1 (15-ounce) can black beans
– 8-ounces low-fat ranch dressing
– 6 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded
– 1 (10-ounce) package frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
– 1 (16-ounce) jar salsa
– 10 ounce lettuce, washed and torn

Mix ingredients and serve on top of lettuce. Serves 6.
