Tuna Salad in a pita with sneaky cauliflower :D

TUNA SALAD with cauliflower

2 (6-ounce) cans light tuna packed in spring water

1/2cup cauliflower puree (just steam it and beat it till creamy)

1/4cup reduced fat mayo or miracle whip

2 stalks celery finely chopped or grated (i don't add this cuz i hate celery)

1/4tsp chili powder or to taste

1/4tsp sweet paprika

1/4tsp garlic powder

1/2tsp sea salt or to taste

1/8tsp pepper

Drain tuna well, then turn it into a large bowl and break it up with a fork.

Fold in the cauliflower puree and mayo. Then stir in the celery and seasonings.

Stuff it into a nice warm pita and chow down. :)

One serving of this salad provides 21 grams of lean, high quality protein and a good amount

of B vitamins (important for healthy immune

system). Make the salad with light rather

white tuna, because white tuna has been

shown to contain high levels of mercury.
