Tuna and Artichoke Sandwiches

Tuna and Artichoke Sandwiches
If you're the type who wrinkles your noise when you hear the words "tuna" and "sandwich" in the same sentence, perhaps this variation will change your mind. I like tuna salad because it makes for a super easy lunch or dinner and can be relatively healthy if you don't add gobs of mayo.

This does have a bit of mayonnaise in it, but it serves only to moisten the salad and add a little flavor. As you can see from the photos, the other ingredients are much more prominent! We particularly liked the saltiness added from the kalamata olives, and the artichokes and lemon juice add a little something special.

Because this can be stored for a few days in the fridge, it would be the perfect thing to make a big batch of and enjoy for lunch over the course of a few days! You can also eat it over greens, in a pita, or with crackers!

Farro, Green Bean, and Tuna Salad

Pin It

I think farro might be the new quinoa. Two or three years ago, no one really knew much about quinoa and you didn’t see many recipes for it (or at least I didn’t). Now, it’s everywhere! Farro is definitely a less popular grain, and yet I have the idea it’s gaining popularity. Cooking Light recently featured a few different farro recipes. Their July issue also compared different grains and farro is comparable in protein to quinoa, but (slightly) lower in calories and higher in fiber.
