MEDITERRANEAN TUNA SALAD
1 roma tomato, chopped
1/4 cup Kalamata olives, halved
2 teaspoons capers (optional)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon basil pesto
Salt and pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and stir gently to combine. Chill for several hours before serving.
I'm always looking for something tasty and healthy to fix myself for lunch, and this tuna salad is both. At my age, those lean proteins are important if I want to keep what little muscle tone I still have left! I usually make this with white albacore tuna, but any canned tuna will do. You can use regular olives in place of Kalamata, but I like the extra kick they give the salad.
Who Dished It Up First
I don't know if you have a Spicy Pickle in your neck of the woods, but this is my attempt to replicate their tuna salad.
