I love salads, and my apple and walnut tuna salad is one of my favorites!
Tuna Salad Tip
I like making this ahead of time and storing it in the bottom of a quart size mason jar. Then, I fill the jar with lettuce or spinach and cap tightly. When stored in the fridge, this will last 4-5 days.
I make several of these ahead of time and store in the fridge for quick lunches or dinners on busy days. Since tuna is relatively inexpensive, this is a great budget-friendly meal idea for our family and it is kid approved in our house.

The key is to put the protein and dressings at the bottom of the jar and the lettuce and vegetables at the top. When ready to use, just shake the jar to coat everything and dump onto a plate or eat out of the jar.
