Healthy Living: Apple tuna salad

The Morning Show
When you’re looking at your average meal, the meat is what usually costs the most. However, getting your protein doesn’t have to break the bank. 
Beth Peralta a Registered and Licensed Dietician with the U of I Extension Illinois Nutrition Education Program joins us to make apple tuna salad. 
Makes: 6 servings
–     12 ounces (1 large can) water-packed tuna, drained (will have done before coming to the studio)
–     1 cup apples, unpeeled and diced (we’re using Honeycrisp today, but any snacking apple works great here) (will show slicing and dicing apple in-studio)
–     ½ cup celery, chopped (will have done before coming to studio)
–     ½ cup low-fat mayonnaise or plain yogurt
–     ¼ tsp. black pepper
1.     Combine all ingredients and chill in the refrigerator.
2.     Serve on top of lettuce or spinach salad or on bread as a sandwich.
