Healthy eating: Surprise Tuna Salad

This one I call Surprise because it’s surprisingly not fishy and really good. Makes for a great lunch. I make it whenever we’re traveling for a light, healthy option and definitely when I’m doing our sugar fast.


  • 1 large can of tuna (12 oz), drained and flaked
  • 1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1/2 c golden raisins
  • 1/2 c mayonnaise
  • 1/2 c chopped pecans or walnuts
  • Romaine lettuce, separated into leaves


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Serve on romaine.
  3. Store in airtight container in refrigerator up to 4 days

About Jill English Johnston

God writes His story on every heart, if we only pause to read it. My heart has lived in a fantasy world since early childhood and am delighted that God has finally brought me to the place where I can bring the fantasies to life through story. I am currently working on a fantasy trilogy (of course) but I also post thoughts, reflections and (hopefully) inspiration to my website: I am a follower of the Rabbi Jesus, married to my best friend and inspiration, and the mother of three incredible children, one daughter and two sons, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love and two adorable granddaughters. When not writing, I passionately pursue prayer, reading (never enough time to read them all!), and the outdoors. My husband and I both served in the US Navy and have lived/travelled through many states and all over Asia. We both still enjoy travelling, but we really love our home in New Braunfels, located at the Texas Hill Country.
