Tuna has lots of health benefits and is still a relatively inexpensive ingredient. This easy tuna salad recipe with red onion and capers can be served over lettuce or as a sandwich filling for a quick lunch or dinner

If you're not a fan of capers, chop up some olives or pickles instead. To make this tuna recipe healthier, use Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise.
