Recipe Challenge: Green Goddess Tuna Salad

The green goddess tuna salad can be used in a wrap (with the La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat Low Carb tortillas) or as a salad topper on your favorite bed of greens.

Recipe adapted from Bon Appetit by Andy Baragani

Fish are not only a good source of protein, but also provide omega 3s. Omega 3s have cardioprotective and anti-inflammatory properties. If you’re looking for a different way to include fish into your diet (besides your go-to baked salmon), this is the recipe for you!
