When I need a high protein, to-go lunch option, I turn to this fast and easy Paleo Cranberry Tuna Salad. It’s packed with omega-3 rich fatty acids, antioxidants and healthy phytonutrients from the tuna, walnuts and cranberries. The healthy avocado based paleo mayonnaise will help keep your brain in top thinking mode and your appetite satisfied for hours.


My friend and faithful blog supporter, Karen, gave me the base recipe for this yummy Paleo Cranberry Tuna Salad. She loves the sweet and savory richness of the tuna paired with the red onion and the cranberries. I like the mix of textures between crunchy, creamy and chewy.


The walnuts in the Paleo Cranberry Tuna Salad provide an important super-nutrient, quinone juglone, which is found in virtually no other commonly consumed food. It has strong anti-cancer properties and is protective against metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular problems.


Paleo Cranberry Tuna Salad is something you can make on the fly and pack for a fast to-go lunch. It’s great when it has been chilling in my lunch bag, flavors melding, and I get to enjoy it up on my work break. Little pieces of protein paleo sustenance can really get a gal through her busy day.
