Whole30: Spicy Asian Tuna Salad

I love tuna salad, and you would know this if you have read some of my older blog posts because I have already posted a non-Whole30 Asian Tuna Salad recipe. And though it is pretty simple to take almost any tuna salad recipe and make it Whole30 simply by using Whole30 mayo I have decided to write up another, Whole30, recipe because I found this one to be especially delicious.

When I make Tuna Salad I tend to take the “Everything but the kitchen sink” approach because I love a full, flavorful and chunky salad. This means there’s a lot going on, but don’t get overwhelmed by the number of ingredients, if you don’t have all of them don’t worry. However, if you are on Whole30 there’s a good chance most of these items are already in your fridge or pantry.
