I heart canned tuna.
There are always at least 3 cans of tuna in my pantry at all times, so when the Recipe ReDux announced there would be a contest for Bumble Bee canned tuna, I knew I’d be participating.
Even more exciting was that they sent me 6 cans of it. And then I may or may not have eaten all six cans before I started recipe testing… that keeps happening… oops!

One of my favorite ways to eat canned tuna, especially in the summer, is as a tuna salad. But not just your regular mayo-based tuna salad.
I really like different flavors, and my favorite is a Greek inspired tuna salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions, olives, and feta.
It’s so delish! And it’s easy & filled with veggies (insert party popper emoji here).
It’s basically the perfect thing to have in your fridge for a snack or a sandwich filling or whenever!
Why do I like canned tuna so much?
Well, first and foremost, it’s super convenient and affordable. Tuna is a budget friendly, high quality protein that you want to include in your diet.
In fact, did you know that it’s recommended that you eat at least 2-3 servings of seafood per week?
That makes me feel happy because I love love love seafood, but not everyone has the luxury of having easy access to fresh and amazing seafood.
Which is why canned tuna is so nice; plus, it’s packed with protein, high in selenium and niacin, a good source of Vitamins B6 and B10, and omega-3’s which are anti-inflammatory and can help protect against certain diseases.
