Pro Tip: Can’t handle the heat? Feel free to swap the jalapeno peppers in this healthy tuna salad recipe with sweet bell peppers instead. They still provide the same crunchiness but eliminate the spiciness. Use different colored peppers for a beautiful presentation!

We love this Easy Spicy Tuna Salad stuffed into a whole wheat pita pocket, spread onto a wrap or tortilla, served over a fresh garden salad or inside a delicious tuna salad sandwich made with whole grain bread. You could also hollow out some large beefsteak tomatoes and stuff the tuna salad inside for a low-carb summertime meal. Yum!
