Salad Season Begins!

Healthy Tuna Salad  :)

Just checked the forecast for today: sunny with a high of 92. Yikes. We had snow on the ground a few days ago. What happened to spring? This tuna salad is perfect for warm weather. It gets a serious flavor boost by adding apples and celery for crunch and craisins for sweetness. Add as much of the ingredients listed below as you like.
The Ingredients:
Tuna in water, drained
Large elbow macaroni
Dried cranberries (craisins)
Celery, diced
Sweet apple, cut into pieces
Light mayonnaise
Green onions, chopped
Fresh baby spinach leaves
Salt and pepper to taste

The Directions:
Mix tuna, craisins, celery, apple, mayonnaise, green onion, salt and pepper together in a bowl; add cooked macaroni and refrigerate 1 hour.
Just before serving, add spinach to tuna mixture and toss well.
