If there’s one thing to know about me, it’s my unwavering love for tuna. I find myself reaching out for it every time I’m in the mood for a nourishing meal that doesn’t take forever to prepare. And this curried tuna salad? It’s the epitome of a hassle-free, delicious and high protein lunch!
One of the many things I adore about this recipe is its simplicity. Ready in just 5 minutes, it’s perfect for those mid-work lunch breaks or even a lazy Sunday brunch. But don’t be fooled by its quick prep time – it packs a whopping 40 grams of protein and an explosion of flavors that dance on the palate.
Unlike the traditional tuna salad, this version gets a spicy twist with the addition of curry powder. The curry not only imparts a golden hue but also introduces a depth of flavor that’s truly unique. The hard boiled egg is my little secret – it ramps up the protein content and lends a creamy texture to the salad.
