Lisa’s Kitchen: Super Easy, Super Delicious Tuna Salad

It's not always easy getting creative with salads – at least, it isn't for me. Luckily, my husband's got his tuna salad recipe locked-down.

Hello, hello! Lisa here, from Fabulous Habits, and I'm so stoked to be back sharing one of my recipes on Kelly's Thoughts on Things.

Can I tell you guys a little secret? Okay, here goes nothing…

My salad game is not strong.

Like, at all.

It's without a doubt that I love being in the kitchen. I have a total sweet tooth, so you can always find me whipping up some sort of dessert. In fact, I'm a self-proclaimed cookie enthusiast. In the past, I've whipped up a batch of Chewbacca Cookies and even these Mummy Sugar Cookies.

I mean, my salads are good but they just don't step up to my husband's. In our household, he's totally in charge of the salads for our meals.

Hubby was nice enough to share his tuna salad and I am so glad that he did. This is probably one of his best ones. I love that his salads are easy to put-together and always consist of a simple vinaigrette dressing.

I'm not joking – that's really it. Yet, it's so tasty and really fills you up! Sometimes, when hubby is feeling adventurous, he'll add hearts of palm and even slices of hard-boiled eggs.

What's your favorite type of salad to serve? Do you usually have salads on the side of your main meals or as an appetizer?
