Tuna Egg Salad Stuffed Peppers. Tuna is one of those foods that has great versatility, which gives many options for preparing dishes beyond the standard traditional tuna salad sandwich or tuna noodle casserole.
Here, we are looking to maximize the nutritional value while keeping the dish low carb and still delicious. Salads are really my favorite foods, but I like to enjoy salads that feature more than just lettuce. This combination of tuna and egg salad stuffed in red peppers and served on a bed of mixed greens is exactly the tuna dish that we want for 2020. So fresh, tasty and packed with protein.

Steps For Preparing Tuna Egg Salad Stuffed Peppers
Tips For Making Tuna Egg Salad Stuffed Peppers
- Always use tuna in water rather than oil, and non-GMO if possible. Bumble Bee offers non-gmo tuna.
- When you are stuffing the peppers, it is actually much easier to do it with your hands, than to use a spoon.
- Slice a small piece from the bottom of the pepper to make sure that it will stand upright and not tip over.
