Low-Carb Tuna Salad with Dressing

Today we have a WINNING recipe for you so that you can WIN in your nutrition and WIN in life!

Today’s WINNING recipe to meet Coach JC’s 10 WINNING Habits is Low-Carb Tuna Salad with Dressing. Where are my veggies? Where is my lean protein?


Sesame Peanut Dressing

1/4 cup avocado oil (or other neutral oil)
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon tamari or soy sauce (certified gluten-free if necessary)
1/4 teaspoon maple syrup
Pinch of salt

Supergreen Tuna Salad

1 (5-ounce) can albacore tuna, drained
4 cups salad greens
2 cups thinly sliced Napa cabbage
1/2 cup thinly sliced English cucumber
1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
Sesame seeds, to taste


In a blender or food processor, combine the ingredients for salad dressing. It makes 6 ounces.

In a bowl, flake the tuna, and combine it with a third of the salad dressing (1/4 cup)*. If the tuna is unsalted, add 1/4 teaspoon salt as well. Set aside to marinate for 10 minutes.

In a salad bowl, combine the salad greens, cabbage, cucumber, red onion, green onions and peanuts.

Toss in the marinated tuna. Add the remaining dressing to taste, and divide between 2 plates. Garnish with sesame seeds.

*Note: Recipe is written lightly dressed. Dressing makes enough for 2-4 additional lightly-dressed salads.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
