This week recipe is another quick and easy salad. This is my go-to salad for when I come home from work and have to make something quick but healthy before going out somewhere. Tuna is a great source of high quality protein and the pasta makes me feel full enough to stay awake for the night. I took this great low-fat salad recipe from skinnytaste.com but I changed a couple of things. I prefer tri-color pasta from macaroni and instead of only arugula, I chose a mix of baby greens.
