  • 5 ounce tuna, canned in water
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 cup mayonnaise, light
  • 1 medium bell pepper, red
  • 1 medium bell pepper, orange
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 8 wooden skewers


  • Drain tuna and add to a small mixing bowl.
  • Dice celery and add to tuna, along with lemon juice and mayo. Mix well and set aside.
  • Remove the core from peppers, then slice into 2-inch wide slices. Place these slices open-side up onto a plate.
  • Slice the ends off cucumber and then slice the cucumber into thirds. Using a mandoline slicer or a sharp knife, slice each cucumber chunk lengthwise into thin pieces. Place a skewer (or if the cucumber slice is small enough you may use a toothpick) through the bottom and top of each cucumber slice to serve as the sail.
  • Fill each bell pepper “boat” with tuna salad and then press the skewer of the sail through the pepper.
  • Slice tomatoes in half and place open-side down onto the tuna salad.
  • Serve with any remaining veggies on the side.
