Tasty Recipe for Creamy Tuna Salad with Olives and Artichokes ...

This recipe for Creamy Tuna Salad with Olives and Artichokes is very Italian and quite versatile. This beautiful salad tastes rich and creamy and feels so much more calorie-laden than it really is. Using low fat or reduced fat mayonnaise makes a big difference. If you want a slightly different taste substitute half the mayo with very low fat crème fraîche or low-fat Greek yoghurt.

This is a great way of combining beautifully nutritious tuna, artichokes, and olives in a perfect summery dish. Makes a great winter topping for jacket potatoes or serve the salad on baked potato skins as an appetiser or for party nibbles.
