Not sure how, but I always forget about tuna salad.
We have about 5 cans in our cabinet as I’m writing this, yet I never seem to be “in the mood” for tuna.
I think it’s because, before this Healthy Mediterranean Tuna Salad recipe, all of my tuna recipes had been pretty “blah.”
I also think that as a kid there’s a negative connotation with the word tuna. Just me?
I’m a huge fan of greek flavors, so putting a fun, Mediterranean twist on this tuna salad was a no brainer!
I used a low-sodium tuna for this recipe because the black olives and feta add a salty flavor. You can always add more salt, but you can’t take it back. Using low or no-sodium tuna is probably best!
Tuna is awesome because it’s basically pure protein.
It packs in 22 grams of protein in just one can! Say what!? You can also get pretty creative with it… which I love!
Sometimes I use guacamole or a yogurt-based salad dressing instead of mayo in my recipes. I’ve also used cottage cheese before!
Are we even surprised a little bit? Ha!
I kept this tuna salad on the healthy side by using greek yogurt instead of mayo and loading it up with veggies. I also served mine on high-fiber crackers which made it extra filling.
