Southwest tuna salad with black beans, tomato and cilantro is a great healthy lunch recipe with tons of protein!
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and stir until well mixed. All done!
Serve as a sandwich, wrap or lettuce wrap, as a salad over mixed greens, as an appetizer on baguette slices, or stuffed into an avocado or tomato.
I use all Greek yogurt for this recipe, but you could certainly use mayonnaise or half mayo and half Greek yogurt if you prefer.
You could also add a small (4 oz.) can of diced green chilies.
Want to add a little spicy twist? You can add a finely diced jalapeño pepper to the salad, or sprinkle in a bit of cayenne pepper or top it with a few dashes of hot sauce or a drizzle of sriracha.
You can add in diced avocado or top this salad with sliced avocado.
Want to make this ahead? It’s a great meal-prep recipe but I suggest adding the cilantro and the fresh lime juice when you’re ready to serve it so they can add a pop of freshness and brightness after it’s been sitting in the fridge.
