Product sampling: Crowdtap - StarKist Tuna Creations in Ranch Flavor

Through I received a free sample of StarKist Tuna Creations in Ranch flavor and could not wait to try out this new kind of Tuna in a pouch. This packaging is perfect to take to work for lunch because it does not need to be cooled and it is conveniently limited to one serving at less than 100 calories.

 I could not wait to try out the Ranch flavored Tuna and so I bought a large bag of simple mixed lettuce with just some carrots and cabbage slivers in it. Then I went to the salad bar at Harris Teeter and added some additional toppings, such as bell peppers, corn salsa, mushrooms, and radishes. These toppings created some additional texture and flavor. Last, I added the centerpiece of the meal, the StarKist Tuna Creations in Ranch. The pouch may look small, but it is tightly packed and adds a good amount of protein to the meal.

copyright Durhamonthecheap - Tuna Creations come in many different flavors. I have high recommend Ranch!
 I did not take me long to finish the salad and I loved every bite of it. The Tuna is flaky and not oily at all. The Ranch flavor is light and not overpowering. So my salad was a wonderful combination of tuna in Ranch flavor and the flavors and textures of the salad. Since I usually just add oil and vinegar to my salad, the light flavor of the Tuna did not overpower the flavor of the peppers, radishes and the mushrooms. The corn salsa and quinoa salad were still packing a nice flavor punch despite the many different ingredients. I really felt as if I was eating a restaurant salad and with the tuna added, the salad turned into a filling, satisfying meal.
