The main ingredients of this high-protein "tuna" salad sandwich is almonds and sunflower seeds.  Never in a million years did I think nuts and seeds could mimic a tuna salad, but they do! The texture is definitely not the same as fish, but the flavor is strangely close.

Both almonds and sunflower seeds are a good source of protein and heart-healthy unsaturated fats. A one-ounce serving of either the almonds or sunflower seeds contains 6 grams of protein and 14 grams of total fat.

This high-protein "tuna" salad can be served with crackers, in a wrap, as a dip or on a sandwich with your favorite fixings.

Give it a try! I promise you won't be disappointed.
