Appetizers Healthy Recipe

Tuna Zucchini Rounds

It’s coming toward the end of January and some people might need to shake things up a little to keep interest in their healthy eating goals.  These Tuna Zucchini Rounds are one of my favorite ways to keep tuna fish from getting boring.

A simple mix of ingredients you probably already have on hand along with the fresh crunch of zucchini slices to keep things low carb if that’s your thing.  You can save some calories without sacrificing flavor.  The best thing is you can double or triple the recipe if you’re having a gathering so that those still trying to stay on track have an option.  You’ll get points for not trying to derail people’s health goals.

  1. Umm… can anyone say HEAVEN SENT?!
    I have been so struggling with this whole new year’s resolution thing. There are only so many ways you can eat tuna – I thought! Then, this little gem falls into my lap.
    The cucumber gives you the crunch of a cracker, while still being moist enough to give the tuna some flavor if you’ve gotta skimp on the mayo. You have saved my meal prep for next week – thanks for sharing!

    1. Yay! I’m so glad it came across your path when you need it. There are only so many tuna lettuce wraps one can choke down. LOL

  2. What a healthy and quick snack! I actually enjoy eating both tuna and zucchini but I have never thought of pairing them together. This just may become my new quick go-to snack on those busy days with the kids. Nice linking up with you this Friday!

  3. This is lovely, as I just made a pact with myself to eat a salad a day, I think this work just fine, isn’t it? I love all ingredients, however, I have never tried raw zucchini (I always steam them).

    1. I’m not a cuke fan so zucchini has always been my go to for that kind of stuff. I think you’re gonna love ’em. Gives a nice crunch but let’s the tuna be the star. 😉

  4. Your Tuna Zucchini Rounds will be a great appetizer! Hope you are having a great day and thanks so much for sharing with us at Full Plate Thursday and come back to see us real soon!

  5. I have been looking for snacks to make, I have just become diabetic and need to lose some weight as well. I can handle the meals but the snacks are difficult. This is a good idea and would work with cucumber too. Thanks for the idea.
