Southwestern Tuna

I was just going to make a normal boring tuna sandwich today - I have always loved tuna!  BUT then I didn't have any relish - and I happen to like a little relish in my tuna (which I know is weird because I don't like pickles).

But then I remembered I had rice cakes, and salsa -- and my lunch took on a whole new flavor!! 

Quaker Lightly Salted Rice Cakes
Black Bean & Corn Salsa
Chunk Light Tuna in Water
Light Mayonnaise

So I had already mixed the tuna and mayo - but you don't have to put mayo in this if you don't want to - it was quite good with it though. 

Mix 1/4 can tuna with 1/2 Tbsp Light Mayo.  Top Rice cake with Tuna.  Top it all off with a couple TBSP of salsa.  I use the black bean & corn salsa (LOVE the Wal-Mart/Great Value brand) because that's my favorite but you could use whichever kind you like.
