Toast With Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Active time : 20 minutes Total time: 20 minutes

This easy recipe is one of our go-to, pantry-friendly lunches. While you can use water-packed tuna for this rustic salad, we prefer the rich flavor and larger chunks of jarred olive oil-packed tuna. Then, for this Mediterranean-inspired version, we forgo the usual mayo-based dressing and gently combine the fish with crunchy fresh vegetables, tangy pickled vegetables, fresh herbs and a simple combination of lemon juice and olive oil. Serve on a bed of greens or pile on toasted bread for an open-faced sandwich, as we do here.

RD tip: This recipe bumps up the health value of your tuna salad by adding a half-serving of vegetables to your meal. Plus, canned tuna gives you some omega-3 fatty acids when it’s hard to find fresh fish.
