Kale Caprese Salad with Tuna
By now, I am sure most of you all have children that have returned to school. My girls head back in exactly one week and I cannot say I am not frazzled. Just when I thought I was prepared with supplies, meal ideas, and clothing; mentally I am just not there yet. Giving up the beautiful, carefree days of summer is kind of sad. The lack of routine is just so relaxing and will be mucho missed!
In our household, one of the most hectic times of the day is around 3 pm once my girls get home from school. Right around 3pm it is like a mini tornado rips through my home once they open the door and spill their homework, papers, and backpacks all over. For me, it means that work is over and I must focus on helping with homework and getting dinner prepared.
Around here, I often turn to salads as meals and jazz them up with proteins like Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna. It is a relatively inexpensive and easy to prepare protein that I have been eating since a child. My mom only bought Bumble Bee® and I always preferred the solid white chunks of the albacore variety in water. Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna is quality you can see loaded with protein, healthy fat and important vitamins and minerals. *see their website for full nutritional facts.
I love that Bumble Bee® offers responsibly wild caught Albacore that is delicious, versatile, high in protein and absolutely perfect as the main ingredient in any meal like this salad. With healthy and nutritious ingredients, this salad is easy to prep ahead of time.I typically always pre-chop my veggies and place my tuna in glass, air-tight containers until I am ready to serve the meal.

I added in some thinly sliced radishes for a spicy element, and some red onion plus the vinaigrette for a scrumptious and easy to make back to school dinner. My kids actually hate sandwich bread so they appreciate salads like this much more as a weekday meal.
