Easiest Healthy Tuna Ever: Fresh Basil-Red Pepper Tuna


We have tuna salad just about every weekend at my house. I’m fortunate because my kids love it. I’m always trying to come up with new ways to give it a twist. I had some leftover fresh basil and red bell peppers and didn’t want to use any mayonnaise. I threw these ingredients together, and it came out great. You may want double the recipe because it goes fast.
