Why I Love This Recipe
Here’s an updated spin on the time-honored tuna salad (with heart-healthy omega-3s), tossed with bell peppers and cashews, on crusty panini. It’s flavored with a sweet, roasted red pepper-dressing that delivers vitamin C and great taste!
Ingredients You'll Need
1 can (6 ounces) tuna in spring water, drained
1 small apple, chopped
1/2 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped, unsalted cashews
1/4 cup canned, roasted red pepper
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
4 panini or hard rolls
2 cups watercress
In a medium bowl combine tuna, apple, yellow bell pepper and cashews. Separately blend roasted red pepper and mayonnaise in a blender; add to tuna mixture. Toss lightly. Divide tuna mixture and spread on four panini. Top with watercress. Serve.
