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.
