Tuna Nicoise Salad (nee-swah)
This is a nutrient dense & highly satiating salad that can easily be modified as needed depending on your macronutrient goals.
The main protein for this salad is tuna steak. You can buy tuna steaks from the seafood section at most grocery stores. You can also usually find the steaks individually packed in the freezer section, which is how we like to buy them so we can keep them on hand without worrying about the tuna going bad before we get a chance to use it.
Most of the ingredients for this salad need to be prepared ahead of time, so keep that in mind when adding this meal to your plan 😉
