Lemon Pepper Tuna Salad

Tasty, easy lunch that's super healthy.



  1. Heat oil or cooking spray in a pan.
  2. Add the tuna, and spices.
  3. Fry until warm and good tasting. Mix the remaining salad ingredients together well in a bowl.
  4. Put tuna and spices over salad, preferably directly from the pan, it will slightly wilt the lettuce and melt the cheese making it spectacular.
  5. Note: tuna can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated and you can add any other vegetables permitted. Great for Phase 1 of South Beach Diet.
