Buffalo Ranch Tuna Salad is simple & delicious with albacore tuna, homemade buffalo ranch dressing & so much more. Perfect as a side dish or main course.
Who loves a nice, refreshing salad when the weather starts heating up? For me, it’s my “go-to” meal when it’s hot outside. It’s so nice to make something light & easy & yet so delicious. The family really loves salads, especially my older daughter. It’s her most requested food & so I’m always trying to come up with ways I can change it up for her a bit. This time I decided to take her love for buffalo sauce & create this super yummy Buffalo Ranch Tuna Salad. She was sure excited & raved over every bite.
Buffalo Ranch Tuna Salad
I started with these ingredients….lettuce & spinach, Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna, black beans, feta cheese, grape tomatoes, croutons & homemade buffalo ranch dressing. When it comes to picking tuna for recipes like this, Only Bumble Bee Albacore Will Do™. I love the firm texture, light color and fresh taste compared to chunk light tuna. Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore has always been the perfect ingredient to deliciously enhance almost any recipe we make. I especially like that it’s Non GMO Project Verified, that’s something that is really important to me. Be sure to check out Bumble Bee® for more great recipe ideas.
Now, because I like to make this a main dish & I’m crazy for tuna, I actually add a lot of tuna. (you see, there are 4 cans there) This is the main ingredient & when tossed together, all the spinach & black beans just pop with flavor when combined with the tuna.
I really love to make this when we are dining al fresco. Adding the zesty kick of buffalo ranch is the perfect pairing. It’s so quick & easy to make, you can’t beat a dinner that’s ready in under 10 minutes.
Refreshing, spicy & filling all at the same time?! I love it and I know that if you love tuna that you will too! Chunks of Solid White Albacore Tuna, black beans + buffalo ranch… Such amazing combinations in a bowl!
And this dressing? Ahhh the DRESSING! So perfectly ranch & yet the punch of buffalo. It’s become the new favorite around here. So much so, that we have repeated this dinner 2 more times since I took these photos. The family sure loves this Buffalo Ranch Tuna Salad.
