Healthy Refreshing Tuna Salad

Here's another healthy recipe, full of protein, fiber, and flavor. I'm trying to take my fitness and weight loss goals seriously - I have about ten pounds to lose and I'm watching my calories. However, don't think that just because I'm trying to eat healthy and post healthy recipes, I'm going to stop posting deliciously decadent foods. I promise that I will splurge every now and then. That being said, this recipe for tuna salad that I just threw together for lunch today tastes great, especially for something so good-for-you. I call it refreshing because it has a wonderfully crisp flavor and texture from the chopped apple.

Refreshing Tuna Salad
1 can tuna, drained
3/4 to 1 small granny smith apple, chopped
1/4 cup cooked wheat berries
1 tbsp. dry minced onion
3 tbsp. chopped pickle, or relish
3 tbsp. mayonnaise or dressing

Combine all ingredients and serve on bread or rolls.
