Easy Tuna Corn Salad, the Perfect Summer Salad Recipe, full of tomatoes, corn and everything fresh. This fast and easy Tuna Corn Salad will become a family favourite. So delicious.
Since I arrived here in Canada I’ve been indulging in some of the not-so-healthy choices you can find in North America.
In Italy a lot of the food products I grew up eating here aren’t available so I decided to give my diet a break and eat an ice cream here, some chips there oh and let’s not forget about the two slices of toast with peanut butter for breakfast I had the first week I got here!
So after adding up all these delicious and unfortunately heavy-on-my-stomach kind of foods, I’ve decided to make a light and healthy meal today to get back on track and feel better both in and out.
This corn salad is a perfect dish for a hot, summer day. It’s healthy and filling and very colourful. I find that we are attracted to foods and dishes that are the most colourful when we are looking for something to eat and this is the reason why I think you will love this corn salad just as much as I do.
Enjoy the salad and let me know what you think of it! Buon Appetito!

Ps: Yesterday my daughter and I went to this event called Paint Nite in Toronto and it was a blast! It’s an event that takes place in different bars located around the city, it lasts two hours and all they want you to do is paint and drink some beer while you have fun! Isn’t that the most wonderful idea?! Here is a picture of the paintings my daughter and I made.
Check out the Paint Nite website for more information on it.
