Fooditude- Roasted Red Pepper Tuna Sandwiches

Two weeks ago, my Yoga for Weight Loss group was visited by Chef Shelley Chapman of Naturi Beauty Concepts www.naturibeauty.com. She came in and gave a wonderfully creative interactive quick meal/snack that was sooo delicious we were licking our fingers and wanting more. What's so great about these recipes is they literally take minutes. And what's so awesome about Shelley is she loves sharing her delectable treats. Check out her wonderful Roasted Red Pepper Tuna Sandwiches & Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups!

Roasted Red Pepper Tuna Sandwiches

  • 1/2 cup bottled roasted red sweet peppers, drained
  • 1 12oz can solid white tuna, drained & broken in chunks
  • 1 8.75 oz. can whole kernel corn, drained
  • spinach leaves, rinsed
  • choice of bread
  1. Prepare roasted red pepper sauce, by blending or food processing ranch dressing and roasted red peppers until nearly smooth
