Chock full of protein and low in carbohydrates, tuna salad can be a healthy addition to any diet as long as you keep it light on the mayo. Make a batch early in the week for convenient lunches or appetizer fillings. For best results, make sure that you properly seal the storage container to get an airtight freeze.

Step 1

Transfer the tuna salad to a plastic container using a spatula. Maintain at least 1/2 inch of space at the top of the container because the tuna salad will expand in the freezer.

Step 2

Top the container with the plastic lid. Make sure that the lid is secure so that the tuna won't be vulnerable to the dry air in the freezer.

Step 3

Apply freezer tape around the lid to keep it in place and prevent air from entering the container.

Step 4

Store the tuna salad in the freezer for up to a week.
