Ever a classic, Tuna Salad has been a favorite for many years. This week, we tried something to spice it up a bit – literally! And so, Spicy Tuna Salad was created!
First – let’s talk about sprouts. In order to make an ordinary Tuna Salad become our new favorite, Spicy Tuna Salad, we needed a sprout with a lot of flavor. China Rose Radish Sprouts were the perfect choice! These spicy sprouts have a strong bite that complements the mild flavor of the salad. As their name suggests, China Rose sprouts are a light pink, giving a beautiful color to this Tuna Salad.
In addition to their amazing taste and color, China Rose Radish sprouts are full of vitamins and nutrients for your body. Each 1 ounce serving contains 2% of your daily value of iron and calcium, 3% of your daily value of vitamin A and 18% of your daily value of vitamin C! These little sprouts pack a lot of vitamins into a small bite!
