The Perfect Tuna Salad for Summer

Lately I have been thinking that I should bite the bullet and grow my cullinary skills. So I have started with something simple: Tuna Salad. I am not a huge mayonaise fan and so I emailed the lovely bloggers at The Bitten Word and asked for a recommendation on how to prepare tuna mayonaise free. They passed along this recipe for Mediterranean Tuna Salad.

The Bitten Word: Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Mediterranean Tuna Salad

4 6-oz. cans tuna, packed in olive oil
1 15-oz. can garbanzo beans or cannellini beans (white beans), drained and rinsed
1 medium red onion, diced
1/2 cup olive oil, plus more to taste
2 tsp lemon zest
3 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp Italian parsley, finely chopped
2 tsp salt
2 tsp fresh ground pepper

All you have to do is mix it together! It is so easy and so delicious. I normally eat it with pita bread or pita chips.
Much love from Chicago!


  1. I was JUST looking up tuna recipes. Sweet!

  2. I think we're on the same wavelength today... definitely need to sharpen my skills in the kitchen!

    Hope you have a wonderful day, Love.
