How to Make I Have Seen The Lite/Light: Black-eyed Pea Tuna Salad


  1. In a small bowl, sprinkle the lemon juice over the minced onion while you prepare the other ingredients. The lemon juice will take away the oniony edge.

    Drain the tuna and place into a large bowl. Add the black-eyed peas and gently stir. Add onions, black pepper, salt, and Tabasco sauce. Drizzle with olive oil to add the moisture consistency that you prefer.

    Serve on crackers, toasted bread, or be creative.
