Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Mediterranean Tuna Salad

Makes 2 Servings

Approximate Prep Time: 15 Minutes


1 6-ounce can of tuna

1/2 cup artichoke hearts, diced

1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives, chopped

1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, diced

1 roasted red pepper, chopped (from a jar is fine but check for non-Paleo ingredients)

3 Tbs olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley

2 Tbs slivered basil leaves

2 Tbs chopped mint leaves

Lettuce leaves, for serving

Salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste


Put the tuna in a large bowl and flake with a fork so that there are no large chunks. Add the artichoke hearts, olives, sun dried tomatoes, and red peppers and mix well. Season with salt and plenty of fresh ground pepper.

Put the olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, and chopped herbs in a jar or other container with a lid. Add pinch of salt and shake until well combined.

Toss the tuna mixture with the dressing and chill for 30 minutes (optional) to let the flavors meld. Serve in the lettuce leaves.
