Lemon Tuna Salad

I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving... and Fall season for that matter!  I'm back to share a great recipe that I've been obsessed with for a while.  Eating healthy is always top of mind in our house, especially with the New Year coming... and the guilt has officially set in when I think about the amount of turkey and stuffing I consumed last week!  I've been very good with meal planning healthy dinners for our family each night but to be honest I struggle with what to make for lunch. Not so much for the kids, but for me.  This lemony tuna salad hits the spot!  It's a great lunch option during the week since it's super easy and quick to throw together.  And there's enough leftover for lunch the next day.  It's inspired by a recipe I found on Eat, Live, Run with a few little additions and twists :)

What you'll need

1 5oz can solid white tuna packed in olive oil, drained
5 canned artichokes, drained and chopped
1 roasted red pepper, drained and chopped
1 tablespoon reduced fat mayo
1 tablespoon fresh chopped dill
zest of one lemon
1 cup of baby spinach
1/4 rip avocado, sliced
juice of 1/2 a lemon
1-2 teaspoons of good balsamic vinegar
salt & pepper to taste

How to...

1) Combine tuna, artichokes, peppers, lemon zest, dill and mayo in a mixing bowl. Season with salt & pepper
2) Serve tuna salad on a bed of spinach and top with avocado
3) For dressing, drizzle lemon juice and balsamic vinegar over the top
