Mediterranean Tuna Salad recipe

This is a fabulous way to make tuna salad. It is creamy but has the contrast of olives with the tender tuna. Be sure to buy tuna packed in oil because of the much better flavor that it has. Serves 6 as a salad.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large cans of yellowtail tuna pack in oil
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted red peppers
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 cups chopped lettuce
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • balsamic vinegar, if desired

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except the lettuce and tomato. Warm up the cream cheese in the microwave if necessary.

  2. Taste the salad and season as needed with salt and pepper.

  3. Serve the salad on top of the lettuce garnished with tomato slices.

  4. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar if desired.
