Inspired by long lunches on the mediterranean coast and Nicoise salad, here is my take on a tuna salad that isn't too creamy - but packed full of flavor. —aussiefoodie

What You'll Need
  • 8 ounces Canned tuna in olive oil, drained
  • 1/3 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup nicoise olives, halved
  • 2 tablespoons diced red onion
  • 1 Celery stick, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • fresh ground sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon mayonnaise
  1. Place the tuna in a bowl and break apart the chunks. Mix in the other ingredients, dress with mayonnaise, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Serve inside pita bread, on top of your favorite cracker or just by itself, and enjoy in the sun!

Delicious! I used Kalimantan olives because that is what I had on hand. I also added some arugula. I will make this again and again.
