Mediterranean Style Tuna Salad



Mediterranean Style Tuna Salad is my new favorite dish!  Sometimes I just want to eat tuna salad that is with your classic traditional ingredients--onions, pickle relish, mayonnaise, and eggs. But this time, I want something that is so non-traditional for me.

I couldn't decide what to put in it, so I just leaned into my refrigerator and looked for what I had on hand, and I found several ingredients that I loved in other dishes, so I was on my way to my quest for a delicious tuna salad, Mediterranean no less.

  1. This would be a perfect tuna salad for me to take to work for my lunch. I like the traditional tuna too but I agree, sometimes you just want something different. This would be great in a whole-wheat pita with some fresh fruit and cut-up veggies on the side. Yum!
