Easy Chunky Tuna Salad

Eating, and eating healthy meals, constantly takes a back seat. Between keeping a child fed and entertained, a dog exercised, a business running, and a slew of other tasks pulling me in 50 different directions it's a miracle I eat something, let alone eat something healthy. 

One of my favorite go to meals is a tuna salad sandwich. The meal is quick to make and is filling enough to get me to dinner time without mindless snacking. 

This tuna salad does not reinvent the wheel, however, it's my all time favorite and I hope you guys enjoy it too!
