Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Healthy, flavor-packed, and delicious, this Mediterranean Tuna Salad is a budget-friendly recipe to use up pantry staples as well as a few crunchy veggies like peppers and tomatoes. 

This salad is high in protein, fiber, and heart-healthy fats.  It’s gluten-free, paleo, low-carb and Mediterranean diet compliant, so it’s a winner all around. 

This tuna salad recipe does not have any mayo – instead, it is light and zesty from a lemon olive oil dressing.  Trust me, you will not miss the mayo at all!   The perfect make-ahead lunch option, you can serve this tuna and white bean salad on its own, over toast, or over a crunchy Romaine lettuce salad for a perfect lunch option. 

I chose ingredients that pair well together and also hold up in the refrigerator for days. 

Pick up canned tuna and white beans on sale at Safeway to make this healthy recipe for lunch or a quick and easy dinner this week.

How to Make Mediterranean Tuna Salad 

Place the tuna in a medium bowl or food storage container.  Flake the tuna slightly with a fork. 

Add the beans, bell pepper, tomatoes, shallot, olives, capers, feta cheese, fresh dill, and parsley to the bowl.  Toss to mix.  Drizzle with olive oil and fresh-squeezed lemon and a few turns of freshly cracked black pepper. 

Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for lunches throughout the week.  This Mediterranean Tuna and White bean salad will be good for 4 days in the refrigerator.  After 4 days, the tomatoes and peppers will start to get soggy from the acid in the lemon juice.
