These tuna muffins make for a wonderful light lunch and very festive looking too. The muffins are moist with the veggies inside and chewy at the same time because of the tuna. They are wonderful! Plus, they are low carb and healthy too. The cucumber salad went perfect with them. I actually dipped my muffin into some of the sweet cucumber sauce. :-) YUMM
