Tuna Beet Quinoa Salad

Updated: Feb 22, 2021


The options for salads are absolutely endless and it’s seriously SUCH a fun time for me to try different combos of foods! When it comes to this salad, it's a bit different though. Many people have a weird relationship with canned tuna, but if you season it right, it can be so delicious and flavorful. I usually add canned tuna to my salads, wraps, or toasts and it always hits the spot. If you have mixed feelings about this salad, do me a favor and give it a try.
