Tuna is an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. If you’re a tuna lover like me, you will love this appetizer!! Serve this as a fancy dip with baked chips, seeded flat bread, or on cucumber slices to keep it low carb. Also makes a fabulous lunch over a bed of baby greens. Buy your tuna at a
reputable fish market and impress your friends!
