Pesto Tuna Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Pesto Tuna Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

DC Girly Girl 32

"I was bored and hungry, and wondering what I was going to do with some left-over pesto and some pesky sun-dried tomatoes that I wanted to get out of the fridge. I'm also a low-carber, so pasta was out of the question. It may seem kind of a weird combination, but the sun-dried tomatoes gave the tuna salad a nice sweetness and added an interesting texture."

I love tuna but make the worst tuna salad. Not anymore! The pesto+sun-dried tomato combination is perfect! Thanks!

Delicious! I ended up turning this into a pasta salad (adding in whole wheat rotini) when some guests came over, and there was nothing left in the bowl afterwards! Thank you for sharing such a g...
