Tuna and Mozzarella Salad

Tuna and Mozzarella salad is my goto light salad with a bit of protein. It works great for training days, because I don’t feel hungry after it but I also don’t feel like I eat whole bunch of unhealthy stuff.

A lot in this salad depends on the taste of tuna, so use the kind of tuna you like. If you plan to use tuna canned in oil, you may reduce amount of oil in the salad dressing to balance calories consumed.

Fresh corn they sell here in US is usually soft, sweet and juicy, so I use it for this salad myself, however canned corn works just as well.

Raw Vegetables and Chicken Salad with Feta

This salad is more advanced version evolved from Raw Vegetable Salad with Feta.

I added few ingredients: kale, celery, zucchini, corn, olives, mushrooms and a protein source, boiled chicken, to make things a bit more interesting.

I take this salad ingredients with me and slice them up at work for a healthy lunch. It only takes few minutes to do.

By the way, if you boil chicken right before making the salad, make sure you let it cool down to room temperature first.

Crab Sticks Salad with Napa and Cucumber

It is time for summer cookouts yet? I bet it is! Who said cookouts should be all meat and bread – add a bit of vegetables and crab sticks 🙂

Napa gives this salad tender filling; however you can substitute white cabbage for napa – it will work fine, just remember to tenderize shredded cabbage with your hands.

If you use frozen crab sticks, make sure they unfreeze completely and all extra liquid is removed before adding them to the salad.

Chicken Salad with Pineapple

This is one of my favorite chicken salads, you can also call it potato salad or salad with chicken, pineapple and potato. Whatever you call it, it is still delicious. After all, chicken and pineapples are a good combination.

I also found what fire roasted marinated bell peppers are good substitute for the home pickled ones in this salad, and good thing is: those you can actually find in the nearby shop. But you can also use homemade ones if you’ve got some.

I hope you will enjoy this tasty chicken salad as much as I did yesterday.
