Give your brown-bag lunches a flavor boost with our lemony, veggie-filled tuna salad. It’s a breeze to pull together and takes only 15 minutes. You can serve it as a sandwich as we have here or serve the tuna salad over a bed of peppery arugula for an even more vegetable-forward lunch or easy dinner option. Water-packed tuna is a wonderful, inexpensive protein source that works beautifully in this salad, but you could also use leftover chopped cooked chicken or rotisserie chicken, if you like. This version isn’t heavy on mayonnaise. It uses just enough to bind the salad together.
