Every since I could chew I’ve loved peppers.  My parent’s had a garden in our backyard and one huge section was dedicated to just peppers from sweet to hot they grew them.  I use to eat my ham and cheese sandwiches with green pepper strips on the side, not chips.  I still love peppers to this day.  I could just eat them plain.  I’m a huge veggie eater and we always have peppers in our home.

Lately I’ve been trying to eat more fish.  My mom used to make a pasta salad with peppers, onions, tuna, elbow noodles, and mayonnaise.  As much as I love eating that I don’t like how I felt after eating it.  Mayo, pasta..   So instead I chose to leave those two ingredients out, and still enjoy my mother’s salad – and that’s where Tuna Pepper Salad takes form.

    I must try this. I don’t care for green bell peppers so I’ll try the orange and yellow and red. Thanks

    Peppers add the right amount of “kick” to just about anything. Even though I don’t like Tuna but the I think I’d try this substituting Chunk White Chicken instead.

    I love that this is made with yogurt and no mayo. Every tuna salad I have seen has had mayo and I can’t stand it. Will have to try this one.
