That’s right, when we create a recipe with ingredients that we love and that’s also got creamy and crunchy in it, then we’re all over it.  And as we’ve been whipping up a lot of recipes with eggs, (have you tried our Bell Pepper and Egg Salad Stuffed Celery or our Egg Salad Tomato Poppers), we couldn’t wait to make this hot number!

2 tbsp sunflower seeds
1 chopped small green apple
1/2 cup sliced cucumber
1/2 cup celery
1/2 cup jicama
1/2 cup carrots
1/4 cup grape or cherry tomatoes
1 tsp olive oil
Flavored vinegar to taste (optional)
Fresh squeeze lemon juice to taste (optional)

Directions

Add mixed greens to a bowl. Top with egg, artichoke, sunflower seeds, apple, cucumber, celery, jicama, carrots and tomatoes. Mix ingredients together. Drizzle with olive oil and flavored vinegar of choice or lemon if desired. The apple, sunflower seeds, and jicama add a delicious crunch and sweetness that complement the flavor of the tuna.
