Tuna salad. It’s simple, inexpensive and a pretty nutrient dense meal. It can also tire easily. Whenever I’m feeling over tuna salad, I’ll try do something a bit different – taking its essence and changing it ever so slightly, so that it becomes fresh again. These tuna salad sweet potato boats are simple but have enough of a twist that it takes a boring tuna salad and turns it into a fresh and delicious meal.
