Tuna Salad Pita

Snead eye group eyecare

This is a great summer afternoon lunch or light dinner option chock-full of “Vitamin Sunshine,” otherwise known as vitamin D!

Canned tuna is easy to store and has a long shelf life, so it’s no surprise that it ranks pretty high in convenience as a natural vitamin D source. To get more vitamin D, use canned light tuna rather than albacore, which is sometimes called canned white tuna.

This recipe serves one person, so you will get about 150 IU of vitamin D from its 3 ounces of tuna.


3 ounces drained tuna (packed in water)
1/2 cup halved red grapes
1 tablespoon slivered almonds
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/8 teaspoons black pepper
1 whole-grain pita, halved


Combine first 7 ingredients in a small bowl. Toss gently. Serve in pita halves.
